Argyll and Bute Council has revoked a ban which barred on nine-year-old blogger, Martha Payne from taking her camera to the school and taking pictures of the meals offered to her at the Payne instutution.
Payne had started a blog in which she criticized the school mean. The blog, NeverSeconds blog, was viewed by more than three million views in just six weeks and it also got the backing on celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
"I'm a growing kid and I need to concentrate all afternoon and I can't do it on 1 croquette," she wrote. "Do any of you think you could?"
The council had imposed a ban on her from taking her camera to the school and taking pictures of the meal. However, the ban had to be revoked following negative publicity of the council in social networks and media.
Martha helped raise money for Mary's Meals charity through her site. The charity runs school feeding projects in communities around the world where children are forced to stay away from school due to poverty. She tanked people for support, which resulted in the revoking of the ban on her camera.
"I think you know why I don't have a picture today but I will have on Monday! Thanks to everyone that has helped to get my blog back on track. I would have missed writing it a lot and I'm looking forward to sharing my dinners and yours," she said.
A small thank you isn't enough so here's a big THANK YOU to you all!," wrote the nine year old.
