Eating and drinking can be a challenge while you have a new baby in the house. You get used to eating most meals cold or reheated and hot drinks half-finished. If you’re breastfeeding, you'll need to eat a little extra too – about 2000-2100kJ (energy) per day - that’s the equivalent of another meal. These snacks will fill the gaps and won’t take up too much prep time. They’re healthy and satisfying, and you can even eat some of them one-handed!

Hardboiled eggs Eggs are nature’s wonder food! Boil a few eggs and keep them in the fridge for a quick, filling snack – peel them first to save time later. Eggs are high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, and they also provide all nine essential amino acids along with a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.
