Do you have a Nigerian school lunch timetable for your kids?
You see, there is nothing as stressful as trying to figure out what to put in your child’s school lunchbox every morning.
Indeed, this is true, especially if you live in Nigeria where we focus on very few healthy foods.
And I don’t know if it’s just me, but time seems to tick fastest in the mornings; making thinking about what to pack on the spot cause unnecessary delay, stress, confusion, and lateness to school.
As a result, I have put together this highly nutritious and easy to make Nigerian School Lunch Timetable covering 4 weeks of school. Yes! One whole month.
This means that by the time you are done reading this article, you would have gotten 20 Nigerian school lunch ideas in your timetable.
