Getting prepared for school after a lovely long holidayis always very difficult for kids,especially when it has to do with waking up early and packing of school bags,they wish to have stayed the whole year at home playing and meeting with new friends in the neigbourhood without being bothered with resumption.

One of the things you can do for them as a best mom is to put some smiles on their faces by giving them the best food with the required energy they need in their lunch boxes, remember you are a mother who doesn’t depend just on chocolates and sugary snacks, you can try mixing up other foods especially foods like noodles, plantain chips, banana, sandwich, macaroni which contains:protein, carbohydrate and fibre, and you’ll be their centre of admiration! Lol! Just the same way kids love couscous,noodles and jollof rice, that’s the way they love macaroni especially when it is well prepared with the right ingredients like chicken, beef,or fish to mention a few.
