The legendary chef says he has very little time for screens at the table, but adds they come in useful to get his youngest lad River to feed him ‘the good stuff’
Jamie Oliver has admitted he gives his younger son an iPad at the dinner table to “hypnotise” him to eat.
The TV chef – who has Poppy, 17, Daisy, 16, Petal, 10, Buddy, nine and River, three, with wife Jools – said he is forced into the desperate measure to get his fussy lad to eat the “good stuff”.
He said: “I hate screens, however River is such a feral child. Sometimes, we have to have a screen.
“We hate it. I am pretty much zero-tolerance with screens at the table as it really p*sses me off.”
