I’m due for bub in 6 weeks but could have as soon as 4-5 weeks as I’m being induced. Just want to know meals I can start making now that’ll keep 6-8 weeks. I might be having c section if bub doesn’t turn and want to be prepared. Thanks fellow mums.

  • Pasta, rice and chicken all freeze really well. Whip up a big batch and separate.
    If for winter you .ca do soups too like vegetable and pumpkin


  • Most casseroles, slw cooker meals, or pastas freeze well.


  • Vegetarian recipes also freeze well.


  • This is an old post but for any soon to be new mums – stews, pasta dishes, basic chicken and beef dishes keep well in the freezer.


  • Spag bog! Really interesting reading the comments to this!


  • Tuna pasta, spag Bol, lasagne, home made sausage rolls, egg and bacon pie


  • tuna mornay, spag bog, shepards pie


  • Rice chicken and carrot soup lemon soup easily prepared and then frozen


  • Lasgane is always good to freeze.
    Home made quiches.
    I also freeze shephers pie without the mash topping.
    Meatballs. Fried rice freezes well too. Soup.
    Good luck.I will keep an eye on this post as i like to make meals ahead.


  • Casseroles, pies and mince and pasta dishes work well


  • Casseroles are usually the best then you can just freeze or spag bog (just the sauce) as it will only take you a moment to heat up some pasta and reheat the sauce. Chow Mein is also a good one. It’s great that you are going to do a cook up and have things ready I wish that I did then with mine it would have made life easier.


  • there are some good comments here


  • stews are good to freeze and yummy too


  • Most food you freeze, if well sealed, will keep for 6-8 weeks. Other good tips are to consider getting your shopping delivered to aid in the recovery time (not lifting).


  • How are you going with your preparation? And all the best with the birth of your little one.
