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.
