 Martha Payne’s school lunch 


I was intrigued and pleased to hear about a young girl in Scotland who took it upon herself to create a blog reviewing her school lunches. Her blog, Never Seconds,  is a candid insight on the state of nutrition in the world’s schools from the point of view of a nine year old. Along with a snapshot of her lunch tray, Martha Payne even created a standardized rating system:

Food-o-meter- Out of 10 a rank of how great my lunch was!
Mouthfuls- How else can we judge portion size!
Courses- Starter/main or main/dessert
Health Rating- Out of 10, can healthy foods top the food-o-meter?
Price- Currently £2 I think, its all done on a cashless catering card
Pieces of hair- It wont happen, will it?

Martha Payne’s blog has brought on so much international attention in the short 2 months of its existence, that it has incited her school to revamp it’s menus by offering unlimited veggies and fruit to the students.

If you were to keep a log of what you ate everyday, would you be confident enough to post it on a public forum for all to see? On a regular basis I get approached by members on how to take that first step to changing their diet to aid in gains in the gym. My first suggestion is to start keeping a daily log of what you eat. Keeping a log can be a real eye opener for some people who think that they are eating “good,” but when on paper they see that afternoon caramel macchiato, or the package of almonds they grazed over the day, it’s a reality check of how “clean” they are eating. 

So I propose a task to everyone who wants to take that first step in dialing in their nutrition; keep a daily log of what you eat and drink. I am personally open to reviewing what you ate and taking the next step in fueling your body for the better. Send logs to

I look forward to those emails.
