    Default Lunch and snack ideas during pregnancy

    Hi all,
    Soon I will be finishing work and will be home from 32 weeks of pregnancy. I need some lunch and snack ideas. I don't really like to eat sandwiches (well mine are too boring: cheese, lettuce, olives!). I eat fruit at home, but need some other ideas too.

    I would love the lunch ideas to be pretty quick and simple (have toddler at home) and snack ideas to be anything healthy and safe in pregnancy.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    I love making French toast for lunch with my toddler especially on cold or rainy days. But we don't have it with sugar, more like a savory version with tomato sauce

    I eat a lot of snacks at work. Mainly fruit or dried fruit, Carrot and celery sticks, boiled eggs, rice crackers with philly, yogurt and fruit.

    I like to make up a nice salad at home..with boiled egg sliced up on it and anything else you might care to add.

    I make a cheesy French toast which is quick and easy.

    What about a toasted sandwich? Bit more exciting than a regular one, or buy some wraps so you don't have to have bread.

    Leftovers from dinner the night before is also a great easy lunch.

    As for snacks..crackers with spread or dip, popcorn, homemade cake or biccies (if I've been inspired enough to bake!), fruit, carrot & celery sticks.

    Yep you can have cream cheese when pregnant. I do eggs pretty often too but now I have GD i'm on salads only, I have got into using quinoa which is easy and tasty. http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/2515...e+quinoa+pilaf
