As parents we all know how cooking is always the last in a long line of priorities when you have a newborn. Caring for your beautiful new baby is all-consuming in those early days and any kind of mealtime routine for Mom and Dad usually goes straight out the window. When I had my first baby we relied heavily on takeout! But when our second came along, I was conscious that we also had a toddler who we needed to ensure was eating well. This is when I was particularly grateful for friends who came bearing gifts of the edible kind!

If your friend has just had a baby then check out these delicious and nutritious meal and snack ideas which can be prepared in advance and are easily transportable. I can guarantee that they will be met with a lot of appreciation!

My son is six weeks old and I’m nursing him. We were blessed by our friends’ generosity in providing meals for us! But my advice for others would be to avoid beans (not green), cabbage, and any other gas producing foods in meals for nursing moms. After one meal of brussel sprouts (which we made ourselves without thinking), I learned that those gassy properties pass on to babies in breast milk and make for very upset tummies and yucky diapers! 🙁

Nice post, but I’d love to see some gluten free meals. I struggle to bring meals to friends because so many of them have children that require gluten-free dinners.

Saffron rice, chicken and green beans

Taco meat, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, soft and hard shells with sliced apples and carmel dip
I make certain that all of the dishes are served in throwaway serving ware.
