Dear EML
It may be a good idea to have a medical and a dental checkup just to make sure that you do not have an underlying condition such as infected teeth, tonsils or nasal infections or fat malabsorption that could be causing the bad odour, because foods like maize porridge and rice should not cause bad breath when eaten.
