Diet Journals -  Make printouts of a list  that has fat/calorie/carb information. (Here is one found online. You might want to cut and paste it to a word program to simplify it. Have everyone make a Nutritional Journal to see how they are eating. Teach healthy ways to cook foods.

First Aid - Invite a nurse in your Stake to come teach first aid or CPR. If there are a lot new moms in the ward, invite two nurses, one to teach infant first aid and CPR, and the other to teach standard first aid and CPR.
