Those of you who think your school lunches are atrocious may want to reconsider after checking out Martha’s blog. For the past week, the Agryll, Scotland, student has been posting pictures and comments of the lunches she and her schoolmates are being served. Some of them look truly gross!
Martha’s blog, NeverSeconds, has received over 100,000 hits in the past seven days. Even celebrity chef Jamie Oliver checked it out and was quite shocked by how unhealthy the school meals are.
Nine-year-old Martha complains that, as a growing girl, she can hardly be expected to have the energy to work and learn at school when she’s being fed things like pizza, popsicles and canned corn. The food may not sound all that bad, but wait until you see the pictures.
Eating junk food every day is what can lead to tiredness and obesity. You’d think that schools would know better by now. If you’re interested in seeing whether Martha’s school meals will be affected by all the attention she’s getting, read her blog at neverseconds.blogspot.ca
