Jamie Oliver wants unhealthy vending machines to be ditched in the workplace

TV CHEF Jamie Oliver wants vending machines selling un­healthy snacks to be ditched in the workplace.

The 45-year-old said many workers eat “crap” such as crisps and sweets only because their employers do not provide nutritious food.

Speaking yesterday, the dad-of-five said serving up Britain's workforce 'crap' food was not 'a democracy' – and that there should be more nutritious food available.

He said: “Does anyone give a s*** about vending? Of course not. But it’s huge.

"Often in workplaces that don’t supply lunch or dinner, employees have no other source.”

He added: "I'm saying if you've got 5,000 people taking 999 calls, with three shifts a day and no food on offer for two shifts, it would be morally right to have choice.

"If there's only crap (food available), that's not democracy."

Oliver also told of his pride in his campaigns to improve school meals, including his Turkey Twizzlers crusade.

He said: “If you wanted to sell dog food, there were robust standards.

“There was none with what we fed our children. And I changed that.”
