I'm helping with a Breastfeeding Basics class for 6 pregnant couples. My task is to bring a healthy snack for them to eat.<br><br>
What would you recommend that is good, appetizing for a large audience, and won't break my bank account?<br><br>
At the same center for doula training we had things like pita bread and hummus, fruit salad, muffin bread, etc etc. But that was for all day long. This is for only 2-3 hours or so, so I was thinking I would just bring one thing.<br><br>
Suggestions?

If it is for pregnant moms I'd try to get some protien in there. Maybe some hummus with pita & veggies, or cheese & crackers (but only if you know there are no vegans<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">)

I agree hummus with a variety of veggies and pita bread.<br><br>
I light pregnancy tea or lemonade might be nice too

Lemonade sounds like it might be good, but I am embarrassed to say that I've never made real lemonade before! Only the frozen kind that comes sugar filled in a can. And how much would I need to make for 14 people? (forgot to mention that includes the IBCLC and I)<br><br>
They have plenty of tea and coffee there, but not being a tea person myself I don't know what to bring for fluids!!!

Honestly, it's pretty expensive and time consuming to make real lemonade. Simply Lemonade is really good. It has no HFCS or any un-natural ingredients. Also, There is a good organic pre-made lemonade. I believe the brand is Santa Cruz. Both of these are available at Kroger where I live. Simply Lemonade is with the refrigerated orange juice, and the Santa Cruz is with the juices in the natural foods section.

Thanks for the suggestions mamas! I got a vegetable tray that came with ranch dip (don't know if anyone will eat it, but whatever), mini pitas, hummus, and tabouleh (which I have a love affair with).<br><br>
I didn't get anything to drink because I'm not sure I'm supposed to bring it, but I know the center has tons of tea, coffee, and water.
