Please, if you go visit a new mom, BRING. HER. FOOD. Please don’t show up empty handed. As a woman who has given birth and is pregnant with her second, let me repeat, we want food.

Meals to take to a new mom

So today, I’ve rounded up some great meals that you can take to a new mom! Easy, delicious meals her and her family will love and appreciate! Bonus: All of these meals can be frozen. That’s huge for a new mom. If she’s got seven visitors in a week, she’s going to get a LOT of food. The next week she may not have anyone come by but she’ll have a freezer full of food stocked and ready to go!

1. Easy Chicken Enchiladas. Everyone loves this easy and classic Mexican dish. Fill them with chicken, beef, or leave them with just the ooey gooey cheese inside!

2. Meat Sauce. I love the idea of bringing the new mom to be a big jar of homemade meat sauce! All she’ll have to do to make a complete meal is to boil some noodles!

Famous Spaghetti
You can just make the meat sauce or the entire spaghetti for a new mom. Either way, it’s a win!

3. Black Bean Soup. I can’t think of many things more comforting than homemade soup! Make new mom a big pot of black bean soup that her and her family can enjoy for the week!

Black Bean Taco Soup
This soup is perfect for a weeknight since it can be thrown together very quickly with items mostly found in your pantry. It also freezes well so once you have finished, let it cool and freeze.

Banana Nut Muffins

6. Banana Muffins. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that most people bring new moms dinner options. I usually do, too. I often try to make muffins or other healthy and easy breakfast options for new moms though so ALL her meals are covered, not just dinners.

7. Cereal Bars. Who says you can’t bring a treat? I think any new mom deserves LOTS of treats! These homemade cereal bars would be perfect. Whip up a pan and she can even freeze them if she wants! Though she’ll probably eat them long before they hit the freezer.

Cereal Bars
Cereal bars get a delicious update, with the addition of rich chocolate, toasted nuts, and decadent candy bar chunks.
