Sometimes a nursing mama needs a little help boosting her milk supply. Why not do it with a delicious cookie like Milkmakers? Basically, they’re healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a few ingredients added (like brewer’s yeast and flaxseed) to promote milk production. Brewer’s yeast increases the production of breastmilk and provides B-vitamins and amino acids essential for moms and babies. Flaxseed offers omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for brain development, which can be passed from mother to baby through breastmilk. The oats in the cookies help with boosting breastmilk supply and provide whole grains, fiber, iron, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
I recently tested them after I gave birth a few weeks ago. The cookies aren’t cheap (it works out to be around $1.46 a cookie) — but besides being delicious, I was thrilled that the helped my milk supply. Each milkmakers cookie has 230 calories, with 9 g fat (5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 4 g protein, 2 g fiber, and 33 g carbohydrates. The ingredients are oats, flour, butter, sugar, chocolate chips, eggs, brewer’s yeast, ground flax seed, salt, vanilla, water and baking soda. No preservatives are added, so freeze the cookies until you are ready to eat them.
Thank you to Milkmakers for providing a product sample.
