Nigeria is very rich in agriculture. The lands are fertile, and not prone to natural disasters. There are many rich foods in Nigeria, especially in the north. By trying out the cultural foods of other tribes too, we are enriching our diets in many ways.
In this article, we will provide a Nigerian food time table for a week for families who are interested in eating a balanced, healthier diet.
Tip: It’s okay to cook your meals early and pack them in a warmer to be consumed at the office or in school. This way, you can ensure that the family stays well fed on a nutritious, balanced diet.
As you know, our Nigerian food time table is not the gospel. As much as possible, be creative with your meals, using this time table as a guide.
Whatever you do, make sure your meals contain every single food group. Most times, we eat too many carbs and little or no fruits and vegetables. Our detailed timetable helps you maintain a balanced diet.
Eating healthy involves just more than following the timetable. It also entails eating the right amount of vegetables, fruits, and making sure to meet your daily liquid intake goals.
Food time table: Healthy feeding tips for your Nigerian family
- Eat lots of fruits. Form a habit of stocking up on seasonal fruits. Introduce fruits to your children and encourage them to appreciate healthy eating.
- Drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up. You can proceed with your breakfast and a bowl of fruit salad right after this. In fact, if you take water and fruit in the morning, it will help to rev up your metabolism.
- Eat your last meal at or before 7 p.m. If you get hungry afterwards, drink tea (not hot chocolate) and snack on a handful of fruits.
- Drink water 30 minutes before or after a meal.
- If you must consume liquids while you eat, drink water instead of beer or soft drinks. This helps with digestion.
- Cook with minimal oil.
- Do everything in moderation. Too much or too little food, fruit, water can make you sick.
- Tea and coffee are best avoided one hour before and after meals.
- Eat when you are sitting in the correct sitting position. Don’t slouch when eating.
- Don’t rush your food. Chew properly before swallowing so as to hasten and make the digestion process easier.
