Reply to Questions from Liss Junior school

Thank you very much our friends in Liss Junior school for the response to our questions through Kathungu Edvine the Readers’ Club Chairperson.

It has been interesting that we have been sharing such information and have also leant more about how we can improve our lives in the way of feeding.

Thanks our friends in Liss, we have read the blog about the cooking challenge and it all sounds very great.

As in reply to your questions on how we use our sweet potato, we have put some pictures on how we used them for quick and easy consumption at school.

When we are in the village, boiled sweet potato can be smashed into paste which we eat with ground nuts stew. This is very sweet and leave one thinking about when to have it again.

We can also use them when peeled and boiled with fish and other sources to have our lunch.

This is mostly used for lunch but not supper unless otherwise. As we always have fish or meat with mixed millet and cassava flour.

We have also got a chance to study with a recipe on how to prepare an omelette. In our science lesson in P.6 and our work with experimentation is as indicated.

Below today we have learnt how to make an Omelette using eggs.

We had to design some questions for the best of our learning.

We hope that we can share the questions with our friends in Liss students.
