What Are Some One-Hand Recipes for a New Mom?

Q: I’m expecting my second child and my goal is to be better prepared for one-handed eating this time around.

Ideally, I’d like to be able to have some easy snacks and fixings on hand for myself and my older child — especially things like turkey and cheese roll-ups. (A friend suggested buying pre-packaged lunch meat and storing it in the freezer. Is it possible to freeze lunch meat?). Do you or your readers have any other suggestions?

Editor: To answer your question on freezing the lunch meat, yes, you can, but I wouldn’t. Freezing will compromise the texture almost immediately and in order to do it correctly, you’d need to vacuum-seal the package. Luckily there are a number of other one-hand, freezer-friendly options that meet your needs. I’m rather fond of these wrapped breakfast quesadillas. Hand pies filled with savory or sweet ingredients, chunks of granola, and wraps are also all good options. Check out a few of our favorite versions of those recipes below.
