"Childhood nutrition starts with supporting pregnant women properly and I expect Mr Cameron to also be including this in his childhood obesity strategy. As a father - and father to be - I would never wish to offend women or mums as I know how incredible they are and I would get a kicking when I got home!" Jamie Oliver added on his succeeding posts on Twitter.
