If you are a parent yourself, you know that the greatest gift a person can receive when they’ve had a baby is food. Not packets of biscuits, or packaged cakes necessarily (though they are welcome too), but a dinner. Dropped on the doorstep, without a word – gift this and you will be loved forever. Here are our favourite food ideas for new parents.
Think warming, comforting and packed with nutrients to get through those sleepless nights. Also, consider food that can be eaten with one hand – nursing Mums often have to eat while holding the baby.
If you are making up a snack hamper, think wholegrain goodness and things with protein for maximum energy giving potential.
