If you know of a mom who is expecting a little bundle of joy, you may be think of something special that you can make just for them. One gift that moms are sure to enjoy are snack jars. It’s a known fact that after the baby comes, most moms will have very little time for themselves. A snack jar is a great gift for moms to have around when they are busy taking care of he new baby. What you can do is make the snack jar’s as healthy as possible. Below you will find several ideas and suggestions on how to make these special snack jars.
The first suggestion is to make a simple chex mix. You will find plenty of recipes online on how to put the chex mix together. All you will need to get started is a nice jar with a lid and fill it full of the pre mixed check mix. You can try different variety of mixes, or just make a simple one. Fill the jar to the top and put a nice label on the jar that shows it is a special gift just from you.
Jar of cereal
You can next fill a jar full of their favorite whole grain cereal. The whole grain helps to ensure that the mom still has plenty of energy, and they can easily snack on the cereal in between taking care of the little ones. Be sure that you check and see which cereal they really enjoy so that you do not end up getting something they may be allergic to. I like to mix in some dried fruit into the cereal. It adds a little extra flavor to the cereal and really helps it to taste great. It will also give moms the energy boost that they need.
Jar of crackers
Multigrain crackers have plenty of healthy fiber in it and it is easy to just grab when you are on the go. Fill a jar full of this delicious snack, and the new mom will be able to keep her energy level up. What is really nice is that the mom can easily add a cheese spread to the crackers or just grab a handful to much on while the baby is sleeping or nursing.
A variety of nuts
If the mom has no allergies why not provide her with a nice mix of nuts. This is a quick snack that can be eaten on the go and it has a lot of protein, and fiber. Two things that a new mom will need plenty of. If you make a large jar of this it will last them for at least a month or longer.
When you make these jars be sure to put a decorative label on the front of the jar. You can easily create one of these labels by printing them off of your computer. Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar, and you can present it as a nice gift.
