Mrs Nana Hauwa Adéyemí, who is one of the wives of prominent scholar, Dr. Abdulfattah Adeyemi and a Clinical Nurse instructor, as well as chief Nursing officer, at the post basic oncology Nursing school, National hospital, Abuja was discussing in her online lecture on FRIDAY at Baynakum Singledom whatsapp platform on the topic, “HEALTHY RAMADAN: WHAT TO EAT & HOW TO EAT,” that “it is recommended to eat sahoor”.
She said, sahoor is the light meal before the beginning of the fast every day; this applies especially to special groups such as older people, adolescents, pregnant women, and nursing mothers, as well as children who choose to fast”.
Hauwa stated in her lecture that the sahoor meal, which constitutes a light breakfast, needs to include vegetables, a serving of carbohydrates such as bread/bread roll made from wholewheat, protein-rich food such as dairy products (cheese that is not salty/labane/milk) and/or egg, as well as an avocado side dish.

“The idea is not how much you eat but how nourishing. when you eat much the fast will weigh you down more than when you eat light but nourished meal” she said.
Hauwa also recommended that plain Yoghurt, Banana, fruit smoothies etc is also a good combo for suhoor.
