Jamie Oliver's African School Dinners has been attacked as "distasteful" and "a step too far".

The show, which sees the tireless campaigner and occasional chef investigating the state of nutrition in educational institutions throughout the continent, has been criticised for its judgmental and insensitive approach.

Previous episodes have seen The Naked Chef berating starving families for "a tedious obsession" with a food's life-sustaining properties at the expense of taste.

The most controversial incident occurred when Oliver contaminated a well with Anthrax to make a symbolic point about the importance of a good diet to a community.

Oliver however insisted the death of the entire community was necessary to make a larger point about nutrition and more importantly to make bold, dramatic television. He also brushed off criticism insisting the only thing "distasteful" was the "foul slop that passes for cuisine" in the continent's schools.

"These people are the most malnourished, poorly fed on the planet" he said "but they insist on continuing with the same crap menus and low quality ingredients".

Oliver also reacted furiously when the citizens of one township preferred Tesco's own brand Cornish pasties to his Taste The Difference range which saw him threaten to leave Africa "to fend for itself" and take his messianic impulses elsewhere.
