For first time parents, nothing beats the excitement and joy of seeing their new bundle of joy. However, first-time parenthood also means exhaustion from the erratic feeding-crying-sleeping-changing, dealing with a whirlwind of emotions, and adjusting to the trial-and-error nature of raising a tiny human.

Amid all the chaos of navigating a new life milestone, itโ€™s important to stay well-fed to be able to have the energy to deal with the needs of a newborn, on top of taking care of other household duties.  

But whoโ€™s to say that new parents should settle for fast food deliveries? Here are nutritious meals first-time parents can easily prepare:

  • Wraps 
Easy Eats for First-Time Parents

Handheld meals are best when youโ€™re up and about, scrambling from one room to another. Parents who have their hands full will appreciate a quick bite when the new boss of the house is asleep.

To make a basic wrap, heat up your tortilla wrap, put the savory filling of your choice โ€“ it could be as simple as reheated beef, pork, or chicken or canned tuna, then add some greens and vegetables.

  • One-Pot meals

One-pot meals make sure you get your fill of grains, vegetables and protein in one go โ€“ no need to figure out how to mix and match dishes, devote hours of cooking separately or wash lots of pans and plates. 

Perfect as a weeknight dinner, one-pot meals such as rice bowls, pasta or casserole dishes, are surefire ways to enjoy your meal while still cutting down on chores.

  • Heat-and-Eat meals

Enjoy homecooked meals while still saving on time and energy when you do the practice of meal prep once or several times a week.  

You can cook your favorite ulam on a weekend, divide them into several portions good for one meal, then store them in the fridge. When itโ€™s time to eat, simply pop in the microwave!

Aside from exploring easy and filling recipes, equipping the kitchen with appliances and tools that help cut down on prep time and cleaning will greatly help first-time parents. As first-time parents begin their parenthood journey, baby-proofing the house also extends to the kitchen. 

With so many things happening all at once, having a safe and trusted kitchen fuel like Solane LPG gives first-time parents one less thing to worry about.
