If you’ve ever breastfed, you know it makes you hungry. I’m talking crazy, need-to-eat-24-hours-a-day hungry. So I’ve rounded up some great snacks for the breastfeeding mom, who’s generally tired and has little time on her hands. How about making these as a gift to bring your new mom friend? She’ll be so grateful that you helped her out in her time of need!
Granola Bars- Minimalist Baker. These granola bars are healthy, easy, vegan, and nutrient packed! Perfect for a mom to grab and eat.
Bean Salad- Paula Kathlyn. Packed full of protein and easy to refrigerate leftovers, this one is a win win all around.
Salad in a Jar- The Baby Gizmo Company. Who will do this for me? Otherwise I’ll be doing it for myself because it’s genius! Make ahead salad in jars for a whole week for your new breastfeeding mom friend! She will have a delicious and healthy salad each day for seven days! Brilliant!
Trail Mix- My Blessed Life. Trail mix is an easy snack that mom can just grab by the handful for a little pick me up. Throw all her favorite ingredients in a pretty jar and deliver!
Hummus Wraps- The Pioneer Woman. These colorful and delicious wraps are healthy, hearty, and will be the perfect snack for a hungry new mom!
