Well, Jamie himself admits that the campaign has failed.

"....because eating well is still viewed as an indulgence of the middle class.

He has now embarked on a new project to rid children’s diets of excess sugar, as he argues its effect on public health today is “extraordinary”.

He has previously argued for a sugar tax, and clear labelling to show parents how much sugar is included in fizzy drinks.

“It’s ten years on from School Dinners but it’s absolutely part of the same thinking about love, care, abuse and what we eat,” he said. "
