Big news, I have gone viral! 105,000 people have visited my blog and thanks to all of you. Even bigger news my dad got a tweet from Jamie Oliver!

"Shocking but inspirational blog. Keep going, Big love from Jamie x"

I am really glad he looked in and it has put a smile on my face. I was a bit nervous going to school but everyone was great and I'm glad I haven't upset anybody.


I love Mexican food and today's Chicken Fajita was very nice and enjoyable. It was stuffed with salsa and chicken and served with garlic bread. I got sent back for salad as I missed it first time round!

Food-o-meter- 8/10
Mouthfuls- forgot to write on hand, forgot to count.
Courses- main/dessert
Health Rating- 6/10
Price- £2
Pieces of hair- none, not even one of mine.

Looking forward to tomorrow's menu,

VEG

  1. All your meals look horrible and make me feel slightly guilty that I moaned about mine when, compared, mine were a lot better
    Keep up the good work and congrats on your message from jamie!

  2. well, it looks small but much healthier than when i worked in a school, back in the turkey twizzlers days. that wasn't ever appetising, specially for a vegetarian.

    keep up the good work - i look forward to reading more about your dinners.

  3. Fat free yoghurt with that? Oh, yes - I can really see the need to keep the calorie count down! (Huge sarcasm).

    Would someone PLEASE take this poor child to a decent lunch with some roast beef and veg? I'd do it myself if I were on the right side of the pond!

  4. Fat free yogurt, not good, they usually have aspartame in the ingredients, very unhealthy. Ask them for organic ones.

    1. Yeah, let's see the ingredient list on that yogurt & then we can watch the health rating on that meal plummet.

  5. Hi Veg,

    I'm from Brazil and I'm following your blog! Your idea is great and I'm curious to know what you eat in school in the U.S.. I am 34 years old and my name is Tatiana.

  6. Hi Veg

    Sending greetings from the Czech republic. I'm 19 and just finishing high school. I have to say, I'm glad for the lunches we had. The first few years weren't that good, but 3 years back Procter & Gamble built us a new cafeteria and compared to you, we must have been eating far too well. Big portions and all the seconds you wanted for the price of 26 CZK (if I'm not mistaken, that should be around £1. I really love your idea. Keep going!

      I was born in the Czech Republic, however I live in the UK. In my school our dinners are amazing;I feel so sorry for that poor little girl.

  7. And I thought school dinners were bad (small voice) 25 (normal voice) years ago.

    Change the world, girl! You can do it.

    P.S. it's "pupil's" in the tagline.

  8. Hi, Veg!
    I came here to say how much I loved this idea - you're a true inspiration for all of us. Food is one of the main problems of the world today and every one should help the way they can.
    I also love Jamie Oliver and I leaned how to cook (actually, I'm still learning) from him!
    Love from Brazil, you're news here as well!

  9. I'm loving your blog. It really needed a child to highlight the poor dinners children are given in schools. I'm 25 and I remember when I was back in primary school my meals were a lot larger than yours! Growing children should not be given fat free yoghurts either. That is disgusting. You're too young to start worrying about calories! Hopefully your school board will review the food. Keep up the good work. Stacey x

  10. Im intrigued with your blog. Well done you & keep up the good work.
    Im horrified that my precious son may be exposed to meals like this. He is 7 and i showed him your blog in the hope he'd reassure me, he just said "yes...whats wrong" I have worked so hard to make sure he eats really well at home. Im not sure what the answer is because its obviously a funding thing. if i was a "dinner lady" i'd struggle to serve up one croquet...Your head of school must me mortified at this exposure but he or she needs to act now....what they are serving up is neglectful at best!What you are doing is brilliant, you are eloquent, dignified & obviously very intelligent....well done love x (dad- you should be so proud of your daughter!) x

  11. Poor Jamie Oliver. It must be so sad to see that in spite of all his hard work to get decent lunches in schools they are still churning out rubbish like that! There's barely enough to keep a mouse alive!

    Perhaps now that you've gone public the school may have a rethink about school meals. We hope.

  12. Hii! I'm brazilian girl and student nutrition.I'm shocked at your blog, your snacks are a disgrace! I'm hoping that some authority see it and think about the health of children!

  14. Congratulations on both your viral status and attracting the attention of Jamie Oliver - somebody has a bright future to look forward to.

    I hope your blog helps to make changes to your school meals, both in quantity and in quality. Sadly, as with many publicly outsourced contracts, too much emphasis has been placed on cost and by highlighting this problem, I believe somebody will see this is a cut too far.

    Don't worry too much about upsetting people with your opinions, you'll never gain the approval of everybody, no matter how hard you try. The contract catering company who delivers this food may be a little upset, but in this instance, the truth is they should feel embarrassed! If you stay true to what you believe and can robustly defend your points of view (and hopefully positively influence others), that quality will serve you well throughout your life.

    Once again, well done! I look forward to reading future updates.

  15. It's nice to see some variety on your school's menu (I didn't even know what a fajita was when I was as school), but those portions look tiny. How are you supposed to concentrate on your afternoon lessons when you're still hungry?

    This might be something you can ask your classmates. How filling are the lunches? Are they enough to get you through to dinner?

    One other though, does your school have any spare land where you could plant a school garden? If you were able to grow some of your own veges the school might be able to spend more money on other, better food.

  16. Just stopped by to say your success reached all the way to Brazil! Great, inspiring and educational. I hope you start a revolution on the health system of the schools in your town. It's absolutely great when a young mind makes authorities ashamed! LOL!

  19. OMG! And you really have to pay for THAT? I'm out of words...

    A little tip: if You have camera problems, ask your school friends to take the photo.

    Here in Finland we have free school lunch and alot of kids and parents complaint about the quality. They just don't see that things are alot worse in other countries. I wish that Your blog makes changes :)

  20. Again, I have to say, great idea for a blog. I'd love to see someone here in the US do this kind of thing. As for this day's lunch, I'm wondering why they would serve a fajita *and* garlic bread. Seems a bit strange. And I wouldn't call that little bit of veggies a salad, but maybe that's just me. Do you have a choice of drinks? Can you get milk if you want? Just curious. I'm going to give a shout out to you and your blog on my own blog and on Facebook as well. Take care, and keep blogging!

  21. Congrats for your blog! We are reading it from Spain, and we are shocked! I wish you could eat better food at school. Keep bringing awareness to this, food is a matter of life!!!

  27. I´ve read on the newspaper in Spain about your blog. Such a good idea! Food looks quite unhealthy. You has been a good idea and now society could become aware of the problem and start a discussion to solve it!
    Here, there are some school that has been started to cook organic food for the kids.
    Good luck and congratulation from Barcelona!

  28. I'm utterly bemused by the prospect of garlic bread with a fajita.

    I'm also bemused by the fact you don't appear to have been given any fruit - not even fruit juice. Surely that would have been better than water? (Y'know, if you're inclined to drink juice, rather than water..)

    Also, it makes me sad to think that that's all the salad you get. We had a salad bar when I was at primary school (introduced in my last year, and not so much a salad bar as a table with salad-y stuff on it in bowls.. it was a small school..) and I used to eat LOADS of salad. I maintain that's why I'm still a salad fiend now.

    I wouldn't be surprised if half of your year end up with an eating disorder, and the other half with fast food habits. Do you ever get cottage pie or anything normal like that?

    Kudos to you though, kid - you've not been slanderous towards your dinner ladies as yet! I'm most impressed. :) Keep up the good work!

    1. I agree she should have a piece of fruit with her lunch, however fruit juice is certainly not better for you than water. Water is the the healthiest thing you can drink.

    2. I was talking about juice vs water in respect of '5-a-day' and general nutrition. :) I think children ought to be given water while they're working during the day - dehydration was never good for anyone!

  29. I like the idea of your blog! I'm an Aussie/Sweden living in Sweden and went to school in sweden as a kid. We have free lunches over here and I remember everyone always complaining about it, looking back at it now we had some fantastic food offered to us with salad bars and healthy home cooked food every day. Of course for us kids the hamburger and pizza days were the most popular, but they only came around once every 6 months, not to mention never ever getting anything deep fried :) I hope there will be some change for you guys. Oh andto comment on PP water is always the better option when it comes to drink, fruit juice is full of sugar and will spike your insulin levels ;)

  44. Wonderful blog. The carrot and coriander soup looks good but I can see why you are hungry with those small portions. When I ate school dinners away back in the early 1950s a wicked nun walked up and down the dining hall with a cane and beat anybody who didn't finish every bit. I remember being caned on both hands for refusing to eat pickled beetroot.
    I'm glad children are treated more kindly nowadays.

  47. Hello there, here a message from the Netherlands. Keep up the good work! It looks like you have way too little veggies for a decent meal. And the cooked ones I saw on your photos looked well, so overcooked they must be floppy.
    Also the portions seem too small for growing active children. Low fat yogurt should not be on the menu, but real (organic) ones without sweeteners. I hope they will improve your meals soon!

I used to work at our local as a lunchtime supervisor so I know that children need agood lunch and how hard it is to get them to eat for that doesn't look appetising. What strikes me in your pics is how horrible the sectioned serving plates look, and how flat and uninteresting most of the food seems. You can have proper 'compliant' grub without it looking so dull!

  70. No wonder your blog has gone viral. How can we expect the next genration to do well in school if the lunches are so poor? No child can be expected to concentrate if they are feed poor quality food & tiny portions. Yes, obesity is a problem for some, but malnutrition for all is not the answer.
    Best wishes & keep up your fantastic work with your blog.

  71. Well done for highlighting the poor state of school lunches. Education is more than just maths and English, it should be about learning life skills like eating well, and healthily. Sadly it seems that the schools don't care in this department.
    Keep up the great work on your blog, I know you didn't realise it when you set out, but a whole lot of people are now talking about school dinners so hopefully the powers that be will pay attention. OPur children deserve the best, that food is anything but.

  83. Good Job VEG - shocked at the poor quality and small quantity of your lunch. Have just shown your blog to my 9 year old and two of her classmates. Their response is that your lunches seemed bigger and looked tastier than theirs. They even say that they get more food at snack at their after school club (run independently of the school) than they do at lunch. Thankfully both my kids have packed lunches most days! Keep up the good work. Maybe you should run a campaign to have a secret "school lunch snapshot" day around the world. I am sure there would be kids with amazing lunches. Surely in a developed country we can give our kids better school meals!

  84. Hello. I am Japanese and some Japanese news sites said that your school lunch is normal school lunch in all England and all Japanese who read sucha sites and can't read your English blog think it's true and feel really sorry for British teenagers.Very funny,isn't it?

    And Your pictures really make me laugh.
    I never had sucha school lunch in my school days. I feel sorry for you but it may be good because you will never be a fat girl thanks to your school's "stingy school lunch policy" lol I used to get more than second and was really fat when I was your age.

  85. Hi Veg - fantastic work and congrats on going viral. I can't believe how small your portions are! Please, please, please don't take this as criticism - your writing is wonderful - but just for me is there any chance you could add an apostrophe between the "l" and the "s" in pupil's? So it should read "One primary school pupil's daily dose of school dinners". Thanks! Keep up the really good work!

  88. Hi

    I have been looking at your blog for a few days now. I cannot believe parents agree to pay for this food.

    I wish the schools would go back to the way we had school dinners. We had to sit at a table, the plates, cutlery and cups were already there. Two people were respnsible for putting the food on our plate, we even had to have things on the plate if we didnt like them. We would then have to clear away the plates, then pudding would be brought to us and the dinner ladies poured the custard. We always had to have at least a cup of water.

    Is your water in a jug on the table? And are the children encouraged to drink it.

    Keep up the good work. It will be interesting to see what happens and if other children or even adults (hospital etc) do the same.

  92. They have some odd combinations going on & that doesn't look a great lunch (though miles better than some of the others you posted). I seriously doubt you are getting more than one of your 5 a day for any of those meals & I'd fully expect you to be getting 2-3 minimum so those who don't get great food at home still have one great balanced meal.

    My work cafteria is run by a company called Eurest. We get mostly great food at lunch for between £1 & £4 with plenty of healthy options including a salad bar, jacket potatoes, loads of sandwich choices and a couple of different hot meals. I know we have some subsidy going in but it's not a huge one. Given what we would get for the same money (as examples I could have had stuffed pasta with a tomato based vegetable sauce for £1.95, A large portion of chicken curry with rice, raita & popadoms for £2.50 or a jacket with tuna mayo or cheese savoury or chicken cubes & a salad for £1.70) I can't believe for a moment that's all they can manage for £2 a head. I seriously could do better than that just catering at home and I'd only need £1.20 or so to do it. Maybe the answer is for the staff's wages to be subsidised so the money all goes into getting some decent food? If not surely it would be better if they charged slightly more and gave you a real meal?

  97. Hi Veg!
    Just reading about you on the Internet here in Germany...

    Great about that message from Jamie Oliver! :-)

    I´m so sorry about the food(and small portions) that you´re getting. I really hope something changes...and improves.
    As I read in one of the messages, I also agree that you should be getting fruit(very important!) and a normal yoghurt(no fat free one)...and more(and decent)salad!
    Oh my goodness! at your school it´s like nobody ever heard from the "Healthy eating pyramid"...

    When I went to school in Guatemala, there was not such thing as lunch at school(I don´t know if they have such nowadays). We ate what we brought from home. At least that gave parents the right to decide what their kids would eat, and the child a chance to express some wishes...only there was no way to eat the meals warm...

    I hope with your blog you reach a change, but most important an improvement!

    Congratulations for your blog! Continue the good work!

    Regards from a Guatemalan girl in Germany!

  98. Hello from Japan. We have school dinner here in Japan like UK does, and this is some elementary school's menus. Click the hyperlinks and you can see a lot of pictures of our school dinner.

    However, there's a big problem regarding school dinner in Japan. That is, lots of parents - even well off ones - refuse to pay the fee.

  102. Excellent news that Jamie Oliver knows about what you are doing, the poor bloke fought so hard to get school dinners healthier and nutritious for children in the UK, and what you are showing must be a smack in the face for him :( I read from a guy called Karl on here that prisoners get better food than our children, and that truly disgusts me, no wonder they can escape from prison and riot lol they have energy and feel good, totally the wrong way round. Oh yes and they don't have to pay for them, the taxpayers do, I know who I would rather my taxed monies go to feeding, and it ain't criminals.

    The Government really need to change the way they spend our money in this Country. Why do they think we need yet another new rail line that is going to cost an estimated 33 billion quid, that could go into schools instead, but they seem to have forgotten that children are our future :(

    Keep up the blog you are doing marvellously :D and we salute you.

  115. I saw your blog on lovefood.com. I live in the West of Scotland too and I'm astonished at the food you are being presented with. Have you heard of "The Schools (Health Promotion and Nutrition)(Scotland) Act 2007" (have your dad google it). I don't think your school has heard of it and they should have. I wonder what Mr Salmond would have to say if this slop was being served in the Holyrood canteen!

    My kids go to a school in North Lanarkshire and they have lots of good information on their council website. Perhaps your council and North Lanarkshire council could put their heads together and come up with a solution before you end up with rickets!
    Info on North Lanarkshire Councils school meals here if you are interested, their catering was awarded Customer Service Excellence (CSE) status in 2011

  125. Well done for highlighting the poor meals children are being served these days.

    It should come as no surprise that lunches for Ministers at Holyrood were recently subsudised @ £12.00 per meal. What's more surprising is that they blamed the inflated costs "due to spiralling staff costs" and nothing about the £12 cost.

    Ministers should be ashamed of themselves.

  137. Is this £2 per meal or £2 per week? My household budget for myself and my daughter is £4.30 per day for all meals, drinks, cleaning items and toiletries. I can put together a lovely dinner for both of us for under £1, but I suppose the school needs to recover labour costs. My daughter's school meals are £9.00 per week. She is lucky to have decent school dinners cooked on the premises and they also supply dinners to other schools in the area. When my daughter is old enough I'll see if she's interested in doing a similar blog as yours, only with photos of how school dinners are supposed to look like, although I hope your dinners are vastly improved by then. When we are growing is the time we are supposed to have the best nourishment possible to enable us to develop properly, both physically and mentally. If school dinners don't provide the nourishment you need then they are in effect stunting your growth. In my opinion that is child abuse. I wish you all the best, Veg. Hopefully your home meals make up for what the school meals are lacking.

Surely in the age of ridiculous protocol and procedures such as allowing a child to get sun burnt as the staff are not allowed to apply it or closing schools in case someone slips, cutting down Horse Chestnut trees in case a child has a nut allergy! What example is this showing the future generation that its perfectly acceptable to feed this to children. Those in charge should feel utterly ashamed, but they won't they are too busy in their counting houses :-(

  146. Dear Martha, I'm a Mar, I'm 26 years old and I'm from Spain. We've got news form your blog trough a newspaper. I realy love your blog, It's simple and clear. Here in Spain, at our schools the food is much better than in UK. When I was al school we used to eat a glass of milk, water, two corses and a dessert. The principal courses usually consits of soup, vegetables, fish, any kind of meat... and we never ate pizza or a burgger for lunch, and never a sweet (cookies, cake...) as a dessert, we could choose between a yougurt or a fruit.

    I hope some day your goverment realises that you need a better lunch.

  149. Greetings from Texas, where a fajita would never be served with garlic bread! It would be served with black beans, or Spanish rice, or extra sauteed bell peppers, but not garlic bread! : ) These lunches actually look better than many of the ones in the USA. At least it looks like someone makes the food. My mother-in-law works in a school cafeteria, and she is upset because all they want her to do is heat up pre-packaged food. Years ago, she actually cooked things for them, and at least they were homemade. This is very interesting, and very witty! Enjoyed it. : )

  156. Hi from a USA visitor who, thankfully, is out of school and doesn't have to deal with the lunches/dinners anymore! Our lunches were pretty terrible, but at least a little more in terms of portions...seems like they're pretty stingy with the salads, I'm glad you got the council to agree to unlimited seconds for those! On the other hand your soups sound great...carrot and coriander, yum. Much more variety.

    One thing I don't know if you have there is school breakfast. A lot of the children in our area got free lunch and breakfast because of low income - sometimes that was all they got to eat in a day and so it's even worse when it's bad and bad for you. For the rest of the kids we'd usually have lunch cards paid in advance. You could buy them separately if you wanted to (say, pack your lunch sometimes and buy hot lunch sometimes) though. When I was in school it was about $2 so not quite half of what you guys pay now.

    How long do you all get to eat? We had 15 minutes once I hit high school, I remember having pretty much no time to eat and talk.

    1. if you look into what has happend you will find there has been no change at all to the school dinners ...the school has a menu system with always a healthy choice and also more "main stream" meals for the kids who will not eat if there is no "junk " on the plate there is always salad and baked potatos or a choice of main meal off the four week menu perhaps if veg asked the dinner ladys if she could photograph all the choces she has on offer it would give a better reflection of the healthy options that are being passed up

She makes meals from scratch every day and runs their breakfast program and snacks and it is possible! Keep it up! What a great use of social media. Kudos!

    By the way, I do hope they feed you better in school.
    The pictures you show aren't lunches... they look like snacks!
    I hope your blog makes a change at your school. :)

  173. Hello. Interesting blog. I really enjoy reading about your lunch and I enjoy seeing other countries' school lunches.

    When I saw this picture I echo Joe's feelings about this dish. It doesn't look very Mexican or Mexican-American. However, it does look healthier (in terms of cooking method) than what we have in the States.

    Congrats on your successful blog. I hope they feed you a bit more at school...I hope they give you more vegetables or more meat on your tray.

    I found your blog via this link:
