Dear School, I'm Taking Pictures Of My Lunches And Posting Them Online. No Pressure.

Femi Oke Curated by

When 9-year-old Martha Payne started blogging about her school lunches in Scotland, kids from around the world began sending her pictures of their school meals, too. Martha created a Food-O-Meter to rate her meals, and now millions of followers check in to see what she's been eating for lunch.


Scottish officials weren't quite so keen on Martha photographing her school lunches, so they banned her from posting the pictures online. The ban lasted a day; that's exactly how long it took the Internet to rise up in protest. The officials ate crow, and Martha's back photographing her lunches.
