The smart wristband helping Kenyan students pay for lunch

Thousands of Kenyan schoolchildren can now afford a healthy lunch using prepaid smart wristbands.

Tap2Eat is a Near Field Communication (NFC) smart wristband, which makes it easier for parents to make and track payments for their children's school meals.

It's part of a subsided school food programme aiming to tackle malnutrition and improve attendance in public schools in Kenya's Kiambu and Nairobi counties.
