A New Zealand woman has gone viral after sharing the elaborate lunches and snacks she prepares for her tradie boyfriend, which sometimes include a McDonald's favourite.

"I usually get up around 5.30am to 6am depending on how much I’ve prepped the night before," Kiwi woman Legacy-Shay explained one TikTok video.

"I make all sorts of kai because who doesn’t love a good feed!" she added on her profile as the reason for starting her account, which already has 7500 followers, a month ago.

Her partner is a tradesman who works long hours on building sites, so she typically makes him two kinds of breakfast sandwiches, lunch and plenty of prepared snacks and drinks for the day.


"He works long hours, so snacks, snacks and more snacks to keep him going," she said in another clip.

"Sometimes he doesn’t eat it all, and some days he does – depends how hungry he is."

While another said: "I wonder if any of his mates get excited to see what he’s got for lunch every day."

One person did question "but is he making the same for you?"

To which she responded: "This is my love language. He helps me out in other ways that make life easier but he always shows his appreciation and love."
