'Bad school dinner' blog is internet hit

9:20 pm - 05/10/2012

Martha Payne, nine, took photos of the £2 meals and rated them for taste and healthiness in a blog set up with the help of her dad Dave.

Now Martha, who began NeverSeconds because she was interested in writing, has sparked a global debate about unhealthy eating in schools after the blog began “trending” on Twitter yesterday.



And she has been compared to TV chef Jamie Oliver, who campaigned for healthy food in British schools.

Martha, whose blog has been viewed at least 40,000 times, said: “I never expected to get so much interest.”

The project started out with a snap of a slice of pizza, a single croquette, a small amount of sweetcorn and a cupcake for dessert. 

Another served at the unidentified school in Scotland was of a cheeseburger, two potato croquettes, tiny slices of cucumber and anice lolly .


On her website, Martha commented: “The good thing about this blog is Dad understands why I am hungry when I get home. Today he made a Banana Loaf, shame I don't like bananas, see I am not perfect!”"

my elementary school usually had pizza and cartons of milk. it's been like, 10 years since I was there, so I don't remember what kind of stuff we were fed. I do remember, that if we had no more money on our lunch card, they'd give us half a peanut butter sandwich.

these lunches look horrific. just looking at that pizza makes me slightly nauseated.
