    Saw this earlier today, that kid is a true entrepreneur at heart. I wish I was more like him.

    If the 'healthy' school dinners were like anything I had as a kid no wonder the lad is doing well! I doubt the BS reason of healthy eating anyway. In the UK, most schools outsource the food part of life so its probably their providers kicking up a stink.

    We need to go back to having cooks in schools doing it like the old days again, freshly cooked stuff. The local school to me has outsourced to some place that does 'fresh onsite cooking'. What that actually means is that its mass produced somewhere centrally and then thrown in vans and reheated at the schools, and the food they used wasn't the best either.

    Government wants to support small business, I say tell the lad to push it until he gets suspended and then sue the school. Middle finger to them!! ;)

    It's not really that big of a deal, I've had kids running this kind of stuff since middle school :p

    Edit: Although I don't know anyone that made nearly as much as he did, he must be moving a lot of food to get that kind of profit.

    I go hire him now so he won't go to my competition later :p
    Proof teachers and managers are complete morons - instead of supporting him and giving him some honorary award and making him a positive role model for others, they trip him. Fucking cunts. This is why we still fight wars, gifted children end up being pushed into mediocrity by other 50yo frustrated children who didn't managed in their 50 years on earth to sell shit worth 14k.

    fair play to the guy! Now he needs to up his game and sell them a bit more covertly - maybe have them hidden in hollowed out apples:)

    That would be known as cloaking.

    You get banned for that shit!:D

    That's the problem with this country, too many do gooders and busy bodies telling us what we can and can't do/eat/drive/smoke/drink etc.

    I've lost count of the amount of times I've almost lost it with a teacher at my kids school because they think they know better than me about my kids or they think they can dictate what my kids are allowed to do when it doesn't even involve the school. That reminds me, I've got a letter to write!:angryfire

    Well isn't this a sign of the times...

    I'm still rather young, but 'back in my day' at school, the black-market was for quite some entirely different products.

    Salute to Tommie rose, He is in learning stage and at this stage he might have learned much about how to deal clients, how to sell things and how to trade.

    Best of luck for the future Tommie Rose, I wish I could meet you.

    Due to this being in Salford, you can guarantee the sweets he is selling are disco biscuits.
