Irene went to maliga to introduce the first lesson to the community and being the first lesson she asked the members about their diet and what they feed on most. The members suggested maize coz it was the most common crop grown. Then Irene asked the members how many meals they have a day, and how they prepare it. So many suggestions came up with the different ways. Naigaga said she prepares porridge for breakfast, posho for lunch. And the same posho for dinner. And this seemed to be the meal each day. Irene thanked her for willingly opening up to the other members. Irene then talked about poor nutrition or poor feeding among the different families,the causes and signs of poor feeding. The discussion was so exciting and the members promised to return in the next lesson that will be about a balanced diet.
