Caring for a young infant is tiring, and breast feeding is hungry work. The few months after birth may also be a time when women are watching their diets to help them return to their pre-pregnancy weight.

Here are some quick, easy and nutritious snack ideas to include in your diet:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Whole grain crackers and cheese
  • Low fat dips (such as low fat hommus or salsa) served with cut up vegetable sticks
  • Homemade fruit or vegetable based muffins
  • Trail mix made with nuts, mixed dried fruit, pepita seeds, popcorn and cereal pieces
  • Yoghurt

Choosing nutritious snacks will boost your vitamin and mineral intake. Having a range of good snacks available will make it easy to snack well during this busy time.
