Food

Rural Ugandans eat two meals a day, in the morning and evening.Ugandans generally eat outside, either on a veranda or under a shady tree. Men usually are served first at a table or seated in chairs, followed by children and women seated on mats nearby.Ugandans do not talk during a meal. Parents discourage talking so children do not choke or show food in their mouths and so they will get enough to eat from the common platter.
