Young Martha would take photos and rate on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the worst in terms of health and quality. Most of the lunches were the typical standard american type stuff, pizzas, chips and sugary muffins. Yet it wasn't in the USA it was at a school in Scotland! We are not far behind the Americans with terrible school lunches, in fact, we are probably on the same level.
But thanks to a smart little girl called Martha Payne, she took it into her own hands to show the world what her and her schoolmates were being fed every day.
It's such a crime, isn't it really, kids need healthy food to sustain their brain and physical energy throughout the day and you don't even have to be a nutritionist to know that pizza and fries will not make your brain work any better - only worse!
We need more kids like Martha!
