Having a new baby in the family is wonderful but exhausting! Our new Mum and Bub’s Bundle is designed to take some of the pressure off cooking, and leave you with more time to enjoy with your loved ones and new addition to the family. A perfect pregnancy gift for a friend, or even something to spoil yourself with, our delicious, nutritious meals are always a fail-safe idea.
When we’re running on little sleep with a new baby in the household, it’s easy to forget about good nutrition and preparing healthy meals. Eating good quality, nutrient dense whole food is essential for the health of new mums and also that of her baby, especially if she is breastfeeding.
We’ve included some of our new healthy snack range for you to try. Our Bircher muesli and Chia puddings are in portable, easy to carry containers so that you have a nutritious snack option on the go. Perfect to throw in the back of the pram or when you are running out the door. Bircher muesli has been soaked to improve the digestibility of the oats, also providing a good source of complex carbohydrates and fibre. Our chia puddings contain chia seeds, almond milk and fruit. Chia seeds contain the all-important omega-3 fatty acids, essential for brain and heart health.
The Chicken and Corn and Minestrone and Quinoa soups provide a good source of vegetables and protein as well as fluid. It’s important to stay hydrated and drink water throughout the day also, but fruits and vegetables have a high water content too which helps contribute to our fluid intake for the day.
Our Chicken Burrito Mix and Sweet and Sour Pork are great options that the whole family will love. Just serve with your favourite side such as brown rice, or make your own wraps with wholegrain pita bread, lettuce, tomato and cheese.
We’ve also included a delicious vegetarian dhal that will provide you with a vitamin and nutrient boost and is a great source of fibre also. The lentils in the dhal provide folate, a nutrient particularly important during and after pregnancy.
Our Dukkah Salmon tray meal is another source of omega-3 fatty acids. Oily fish is a fantastic addition to a healthy diet and provides essential fats as well as protein. The Grilled Beef Steak tray meal contains a good source of easily digestible iron, important for the health of our red blood cells and energy levels.
Our power pouch meals and trays are designed to help take the hassle out of portion-control, and are a convenient single serve that you can enjoy for lunch or whenever you have a spare second!
Our vegetable and beef lasagnes are the perfect comfort food when you want something warming and delicious. The cheese in the lasagnes is also a good source of calcium, essential for bone health and particularly important for women.
