I am having a home birth, so need to provide food for midwives too.

So I have put aside, 6 big bottles of water, lots of cartons of fruit juice, a couple of multipacks of crisps, 3 boxes cereal bars and will have pizzas in the freezer and lots of tea, coffee and biscuits! If I was heading to the hospital, I'd probably pack stuff you could pack ages before so nothing perishable, probably just junk food knowing my OH - choc and crisps, juice and water. Maybe some Red Bull if he's likely to get a bit sleepy if your labour takes a while!

I put starburst in mine they lasted a week, although I haven't touched the lucuzade sweets yet! But that's all I've got Embarassed

Off to Sainsbury's for me I think, cereal bars sound good! maybe a tub of raisins!

LOL Purplepants, I'm the same (ate 3 little packets of sunbites yesterday, they're suppose to be for my husband's packed lunches)

I'm also having a home birth so not sure what to sort out for the middies. We're above shops on a high street with a massive Sainsbury just down the road so foods only going to be a problem if I go into labour on a Sunday after 4pm.

If I have to transfer to hospital I'm thinking healthy stuff like dried apricots and dates, museli bars, juice....but I think some chocolate, crisps and sweets will sneak in as well.

Laughing men?! Thinking about their stomachs!!

I hadnt really thought too much about food stuff...although my bag is packed!! I was just going to see what time of day i eventually went into labour and if Andy needs feeding he can stop at he garage on the way (and get me whatever i want aswell!) I mainly though this approach would work, as i dont know what i'm going to be feeling like and i might have a craving for something in particular...mans i can hopefully get it then! (or maybe i wont want anything!!)

I have got some lucozade and ribena though for drinks....love ribena!!
