It is a wonderful Friday, some say it’s Friday the 13th, but I don’t believe in that Oyinbo nonsense. However, I believe village people can follow someone across the oceans if they don’t pray well well. So it is Friday and the beginning of another weekend, you’d want to give yourself and your children a treat.
For me, I think fruits are amazing and should be an essential part of a child’s diet. We enjoy many benefits from fruits as food and sometimes medicine. Erm, Mama and Papa, I know you like “better thing” but kindly, find local fruits to buy if you want to give your children fruits. I really do not know who gives some of our mothers the suggestions of fruits we cannot find in Nigeria or even locally within their region.
I always smile when I see some people suggesting Kiwi, Pomegranates, Raspberries, Strawberries 😱. Are you kidding me? It is like telling an Itsekiri mother from the proper Niger Delta region of Nigeria that she should give her child Kiwi or Strawberries.
Please let’s be realistic. What happened to Mangoes, Guavas, Pears, Oranges, Tangerines and the other seasonal fruits we have in our areas. Don’t start confusing the mothers with what they have no idea about.
Our local fruits are juicy and can be prepared in different ways if you are a creative mother. Let’s be creative with our indigenous fruits. I know many people won’t like the way I sound, but the truth is the truth. If you want luxury and can afford it, that’s fine. However, when we come to our very local level, let’s be practical.
Enjoy your weekend with the sumptuous fruits that you can afford and don’t let your village people use you for bad thing today 💜
