8 Quick & Easy Nutritional Tips for New Moms + 4 Deliciously Healthy Post-partum Snack Ideas

Congratulations, mom-to-be. With baby on the way you've probably already prepped the crib, marveled at the adorable onesies your little one will soon be sporting and, oh yeah, bought a gazillion diapers. Good job! You've done everything you can to ensure that your newest family member has what he or she will need. But, what about you and everyone else in the family?

Your nutritional needs--and those of the rest of your family--are as important as ever. Think about it: Everyone will be so busy caring for baby, there might not be time to cook a decent meal or even go grocery shopping. The solution? Don't leave your nutrition to chance.

Watch the video below for eight quick and easy ideas to keep you and your family healthy after baby has come home plus Lori's four yummy, healthy post-partum snack ideas.
