Friday will be the conclusion of our first week since we introduced vegetarian lunches at Sankofa International Academy. Needless to say it was a success!!! First, my sincere gratitude to Babatunde who always has a friendly word to say to all the children when he meets them. He caters to them in his food. All the foods prepared seem to be prepared with them in mind. Babatunde looks at the reactions of the children and tries to tweek his menu according to their reactions. He asks them what do they like and offers a healthy alternative.
The first day was the mac and cheese. It didnt look like my mac and cheese and it didnt taste like it either. However, it was tasty, so much so Babatunde left some for me to sample and I enjoyed it so much I took it for lunch the next day. It was sweet and fulling, not cheesy, however I still liked it. It was delicious. The reactions of the children were obvious since no food was left behind. The kids ate their portion. There was on child who was aprehensive about eating. That was the first day, however
