One very important part of the lunch box meal should be nutritious foods like Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato or vitamin A Cassava or vitamin A Maize.

These foods are fortified and can give the child the daily dietary requirements even in small quantities.

A little trick or skill and every mother can transform these foods into what their kids will love.

Even their lunch drinks can be made from some of these staples.

The main idea is nutritious feeding not just food.

This is such a great idea Ma.
