Make Ahead | Freezer Meals & Snacks for When Baby Arrives!

We've talked to a lot of mothers, who have admitted that even for babies numbers two and three, they wished they had taken the time to stock up the freezer for the first few hazy weeks with a newborn. We know that the later months of your pregnancy can get busy with planning, cleaning and organizing things but it's important not to overlook the importance of prepping some healthy meals you can pull out of the freezer when you need it. If it seems like a daunting task, plan one day you can invite some friends or family over to help and use these recipes recommended by other moms who've been there. 

Some tips for planning: 

1) Consider making a bunch of filling snacks (think muffin tin size) you can thaw quickly in the microwave for the first month. Hunger can strike quickly while nursing, and its nice to not have to rummage around at a 3am feeding time to satisfy that growling stomach. 

2) Don't stick to all encompassing meals. Consider things you can add to a salad or serve with some fresh sides, especially if you are expecting during warmer months (seasoned meats you can make into salad, tacos or sloppy joes)! The fresh crunch of some fresh veggies and side salads are satisfying textures you can't get from a purely oven baked meal. 

3) Don't forget about breakfast and lunch. Often times if you are lucky enough to have people offerring to bring you a meal - it's dinner. So if you are left alone with baby during the day, it can be harder to get a healthy breakfast and lunch in. Fill your freezer with mini quiches, nutrient dense muffins, peanut butter balls, breakfast burritos, calzones, wraps and individual portions of chili etc. for the days you don't want to run to the store. 

4) Consider making things you can eat with one hand. Meals like soups and curries are great! However they can be hard to eat if you are holding the little. Make sure you have some things you can eat with one hand, like meatballs, chicken strips or large vegetables like chunks of sweet potato, you'll be grateful you did.

    You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga

    When I met Dr. Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me. He did the spell for fertility and after 48 hours of completing it, my womb was fertile for conceiving. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl. Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl and I am happy in my relationship. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats-App number +2348167159012. Email at:

    It’s hurt when husband told you “I don’t need you in my life anymore.” My husband left me for another woman 3 months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Priest Salami that he can bring back lovers within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great spell caster on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still can’t believe it, because it highly unbelievable.

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Michael and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Michael is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA MICHAEL. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up.
