Good Question: Cooking for a New Mom

Dear The Kitchen, I am spending the weekend with a new mother and want to cook a few leftover-worthy meals, any thoughts? Thanks, Jenny Dear Jenny, How nice of you! We've been in this sort of situation many times before - seems everyone's having babies! Assuming your friend doesn't have any post-natal dietary restrictions (best to ask, there are a number of them), some classics of course are lasagna, soups and casseroles, and un-dressed salads. You could also help out by stocking her pantry with healthy ingredients like nuts and seeds; dried fruit, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, canned beans and nut butters. Put some organic frozen vegetables and fruit in her freezer, and for the fridge, get some whole-wheat wraps and cheeses. Any other experienced moms out there have two cents to contribute?
