Martha Payne: The 9 Year Old Foodie

Introducing Martha, the 9 year old that decided to start taking daily pictures of her school-provided lunch, rating their taste, nutrition and hair count. Started as her own personal blog, it has since gotten the attention of the world and celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver. Some less than appetizing meals have been showing up, including the one pictured above which Martha wrote: The pizza [...] was alright but I’d have enjoyed more than 1 croquet. I’m a growing kid and I need to concentrate all afternoon and I cant do it on 1 croquette. Do any of you think you could?

Now not all the pictures are of disappointing meals.. below is Martha’s favourite, Chicken Curry. She writes: Today’s lunch was special because it’s my favourite. There was no soup on today but it didn’t matter because I wouldn’t have chosen it over ice-cream and shortbread. I googled the Hindi for fantastic so I can say my chicken curry was शानदार (śānadāra)!

Gaining International attention, Martha now receive’s lunch photos from children all around the world.

  3. It’s nice to see sweet little stories like this. It’s not all stoned parents charged with child neglect and mothers screaming curse-words angrily at their grown daughters as voice mail messages.

  13. What’s a croquet? I used to play croquet outside but hell if I’d ever come close to eating anything involved in that game.

  17. Wow, this girl write better most of the people I went to college with! Of course she only gets this lunch at private school. Public schools still think ketchup is a veggie.

  19. What are these pics doing on this site? I don’t see anything that has to do with proud parents…except that they must be proud to be dumb for posting them.

  21. I’m pretty sure when she’s older,she’ll be a professional food critic. :-)

  23. croquet around here is not a potato, they are usually made with chicken, basically its bread mixed with some chicken, and then cooked, I love them. usually served as finger food at parties.
