Having healthy snacks on hand can make the transition to life with a new baby a little smoother. This is where these apricot bites come in! Full of fibre, they help to keep your digestive system moving while also boosting your iron intake to keep you feeling energised and help aid recovery. A great source of Vitamin A for reproductive health, vision and to support the immune system; potassium for nerve and muscle function; good fats from the almonds, these bites will keep in the fridge for up to a week, but we bet they don’t last that long!
