The 9-Year-Old Food Critic

0

Remember way back to your school cafeteria lunches. Not terribly excited? Wish you could've had an outlet to express your opinion about the sad state of school lunches?

One enterprising 9-year-old grade school student named Martha Payne did just that. She launched NeverSeconds blog as her own Yelp, with a little help from her dad.

Today I had vegetable soup and sausages with roast potatoes and salad. The lady on the radio said I had a choice everyday of mini tomatoes and watercress, but I have never seen them. My soup tasted of mainly carrot but i am not sure. I had three wee roast potatoes which were a bit small and the sausages are very different to the ones I get at home. They are very crispy on the outside and the texture is like a baked potato.

Food-o-meter- 8/10
Mouthfuls- I must take a pad to keep tally!
Courses- starter/main
Health Rating- 6/10
Price- £2
Pieces of hair- 1 (under the cucumber)

Martha's hardwork is paying off: after some pressure from the media, her school is now allowing unlimited salad, fruit and bread.

These don't look that good. I understand Jamie Oliver's initiative better now.
I never had lunch at school. My school was very small and back then it didn't even have a cafeteria. I walked back home to have lunch with my grand-parents and in junior&high my mom would pack my lunch.
I'm happy I didn't have to eat some of this stuff. I intend to pack my kids lunches everyday. It's part of being a parent and the responsibility of healthy eating should not be passed on to the state.
