Chef Jamie Oliver had some fun over at ‘Good Morning America‘ on Thursday, but he got a little crazy flinging his ingredients and spilled a bunch of oil on the set. Moments later, Oliver took a step back, leaned against the back counter and preceded to fall to the ground. We are pretty sure he was just kidding around though.

Oliver was on ‘GMA’ to cook up some healthy food while promoting his new TV series, ‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,’ which premieres March 26 at 8 PM on ABC. The show documents his visit to “the unhealthiest city in the U.S.” — Huntington, West Virginia — to educate the residents about the food “that’s killing America.”

After the break, Oliver reconvened to discuss how he’s trying to change the way America eats — one city at a time. He admits he tried to get this show off the ground for five years, but “nothing stuck.” Finally, in the last year, he finally got the show off the ground after first lady Michelle Obama started making waves about healthy eating and fighting childhood obesity in the U.S.

Looking back on what he learned during filming, he criticizes school boards for blaming “budget constraints” on why there are large amounts of junk food available to children — and yet nothing healthy like chicken or salads. “I hope and pray this empowers parents to find the money. The kids deserve this,” Oliver adds.

Referring to the show, Oliver says, “It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. And hopefully, it will make you rightfully angry and have a very clear opinion about what the people and especially the parents can do.”
