As a new mum, taking care of your little one becomes your first priority after giving birth. But of course, that doesn't mean you have to compromise on your recuperation.
Confinement meals are one of the most important after childbirth — get the right nourishment and you'll definitely be on the right path towards recovery.
Here are three of our top picks for confinement caterers; pick one and that's one less thing to worry about during your confinement.
1. Happy MamaPapa Catering
Happy MamaPapa Catering provides tasty yet nutritious dishes, which are prepared with less salt, less oil and no added MSG — making them a good option for new mums in confinement.
Some of their specialties include their double-boiled soups, a method which uses a submerged ceramic pot within an outer pot of boiling water for maximum extraction of flavours.
Afraid of just eating white or brown rice for the next month? Fear not, Happy MamaPapa Catering also offers Specialty Rice, with delectable flavours such as olive, lemongrass, long bean and garlic, so you'll have plenty of variations to choose from.
Happy MamaPapa Catering has packages for 10, 20 or 30 days, for up to 5 pax. Prices start from $145. Prefer not to commit? There's also a 7-day trial package starting from $82.
