This article about the local government of Argyll and Bute, Scotland silencing Martha Payne of the NeverSeconds school lunch blog is exactly why I am so adamant in my opposition of governments involving themselves in food. What possible rationale can a government have for censoring a young, motivated 9-year-old public school student over a little bad press? How do we expect our children to learn that they can engage and change the system if our governments are going to silence them over a headline?
Get the government out of food and let the kids have a voice. We’ll all be better off for it.
