Comment posted School Dinners stooshie: young Martha Payne has the right pedigree by Iain McCallum.

But in fairness, she does compliment some of the meals, it was just the (particularly) miserly ones that the national press highlighted. That said, it is a good blog and well done to a switched on 9 year-old.

  • Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
    I asked one of our idiot AMs down here why the tax on paper bags, and the reason given was that it was due to the process in producing them! It makes no difference really. If I want a bag I buy one, sometimes I take my own, and when I spend about £100 on shopping another £1 for 10 bags makes no odds here or there
  • MacAskill damaging record at Justice and Policing but right on Megrahi
    Most forces down here have gone to wearing black wickin (? Not witches!) shirts. Probably cheaper, but equally more comfortable while wearing for 10/12 hour shifts, and more practical. And Americans have got a cheek, when everyone down to security in shopping centres are carrying guns over there. Wearing a black t-shirt and protective clothing does not make them SWAT, although armed officers are regularly sights even down here in Welsh Wales
  • Out of control Salmond scores own goal on poll-tax
    I might still be in a minority of one (and escaped before the practise year), but in theory the Poll Tax was a good idea, the actual practicality and the fact they experimented on Scotland was less than good. Payment per house according to how many folk used the services ,rather than just according to the price of your house, regardless of how many folk live in that house. But hey ho, the 2 of us now pay the same as the next door neighbours who have 5 living in their house.

  2. no suprise in the experiance of this 9 year old and school meals. We hear so much about healthy balanced diet yet the very people entrusted to provided guidance and education in this field are failling our youngsters.

    If this was a private functioning resturant it would no longer be trading.

    • your probaly right … all the kids would be down the street at the cafe or the chip shop with big polystyrene box of chipps and cheese if they were not made to eat there till secondery school and the dinner ladys would be alone with the salads and baked potatos that are always avalible

  3. What do they expect to get for a 2 pound dinner, if just a piece of fruit will cost how much? And a yogourt?
    In the house holdings they don’t do much better either. It a cultural thing. I have never seen people spending money buying and cooking good food.

  4. 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
