No-Bake Lactation Boosting Snack Bites
Believe us when we say that we know that moms are busy! Busy taking care of others and most of the time forgetting to take care of herself. If you have chosen to breastfeed your little one, it's extremely important to make sure to get the right nutrients. These snack bites are great for any mama who needs a healthy snack to boost her milk supply and energy level! They’re super easy (no baking is necessary!) and jam packed with ingredients to give your body a boost. Oatmeal and peanut butter are both great ways to sneak a little extra protein in and are full of antioxidants. Flaxseed is full of those good fats that are heart-healthy. Dark chocolate has been shown to boost heart and brain health... baby brain is a real thing! No excuses necessary to sneak in an extra piece every now and then! And most importantly, oats and brewer’s yeast has been known for increasing the milk supply of nursing mothers.
