How to display a simple list and a list with dictionaries in BoxLayout

I can’t figure out how to display a simple list and a list with dictionaries in BoxLayout (class Content), I’m trying to display the “data_name_list” list line by line, and the “data_all_list” list line by line, but only the values by the key “item_name”.

Here is .py file

from kivy.app import App
from kivy.uix.boxlayout import BoxLayout

data_all_list = [
    {"list_id": 1, "list_name": "List 1", "item1": {"item_id": 1, "item_name": "Product 1", "item_quantity": "1", "item_weight": "2", "item_price": "35"}, "item2": {"item_id": 2, "item_name": "Product 2", "item_quantity": "2", "item_weight": "2", "item_price": "35"}},
    {"list_id": 2, "list_name": "List 2", "item1": {"item_id": 1, "item_name": "Product 1", "item_quantity": "2", "item_weight": "2", "item_price": "40"}, "item2": {"item_id": 2, "item_name": "Product 2", "item_quantity": "2", "item_weight": "2", "item_price": "35"}, "item3": {"item_id": 3, "item_name": "Product 3", "item_quantity": "1", "item_weight": "2", "item_price": "35"}}
]
data_name_list = ["name_1", "name_2", "name_3"]

class Main(BoxLayout):
    pass

class Content(BoxLayout):
    pass

class MyApp(App):
    def build(self):
        return Main()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    MyApp().run()

Here is .kv file

#:kivy 2.0.0
Main:
<Main>:
    orientation: "vertical"
    canvas.before:
        Color:
            rgba: 255, 255, 255, 1
        Rectangle:
            pos: self.pos
            size: self.size

    Content:
        orientation: "vertical"
        spacing: 15
        canvas.before:
            Color:
                rgba: 0.16, 0.62, 0.39, 1
            Rectangle:
                pos: self.pos
                size: self.size

Answer

You can just define a method that does what you want, then call that method using Clock.schedule_once():

class MyApp(App):
    def build(self):
        Clock.schedule_once(self.add_lists)
        return Main()

    def add_lists(self, dt):
        content = self.root.children[0]  # this can be replaced by an ids access if an id is assigned to Content
        for name in data_name_list:
            content.add_widget(Label(text=name))
        for d in data_all_list:
            for key, d1 in d.items():
                if isinstance(d1, dict):
                    item_name = d1['item_name']
                    content.add_widget(Label(text=item_name))
