What makes lactation biscuits different?
They may look like regular cookies, but lactation snacks use the milk-inducing goodness of galactagogues to help new mums boost their milk supply. Brewers yeast, oats, coconut oil, cinnamon and flaxseed are all examples of the types in ingredients used in lactation cookies to increase milk flow.
Can anyone eat lactation cookies?
Absolutely. While a nursing mum should get first dibs on lactation cookies, their nutritional benefits usually make them suitable for the whole family. Of course, if there are food allergies in the house, just be sure to check the contents before diving in as many contain wheat, eggs and nuts.
How many lactation cookies should I eat?
Many brands suggest eating one or two cookies each day to support a healthy milk supply. Check the recommended daily serving on the pack before you accidentally scoff the lot!
