Providing Hospitality to the Hospitalized…

Fishmama has a great recipe swap going on over at Life as Mom. They’re sharing recipes you can give to the proud new parents when a baby is born… what a fun topic!

Here are ten great things to deliver (in bag or box or basket) to the parents of a micropreemie who are unlikely to have a kitchen at their disposal:

  1. bottled water
  2. granola bars
  3. jerky
  4. pretzels/nuts
  5. pre-made sandwiches (bonus points if you enclose condiment packets)
  6. yogurt/pudding cups
  7. fruit (apples, bananas, pears, etc. hold up well)
  8. string cheese
  9. individual snack packs (little baggies full of trail mix would be perfect)
  10. gift card to a fast, local restaurant

Quick is the name of the game. Squeezing in protein and whole grains will help keep these new parents going. These may not look impressive or glamorous, but they will be much appreciated. Trust me.
