So I’m back again with another boobie related post! I know those are my favourites especially as a breastfeeding advocate. I know 23 months and we are still going strong! A lot of mothers are misinformed and think that breastfeeding after the age of 1 doesn’t have its benefits. However here are a list of nutrients my tt will be getting whilst breastfeeding between the age of 12-23 months:
- 29% of energy requirements
- 43% of protein requirements
- 36% of calcium requirements
- 75% of vitamin A requirements
- 76% of folate requirements
- 94% of vitamin B12 requirements
- 60% of vitamin C requirements
Now as a first time mother I didn’t know about lactation treats and smoothies and did a lot of research and stumbled across the brand Boobix. Made by a breastfeeding mother here in the UK. I tried her cookies as well as them actually working they were super yummy. As my breastfeeding journey went on I was excited to find out that she would be releasing a healthier dairy free and vegan option in the form of a protein bar.
Now as a very body conscious mama and we all know as Mums we want to get our body back or in shape that we feel comfortable with. However I’m sure a lot of breastfeeding mamas can agree with me that you get those munchies and end up snacking on naughty foods. So the boobix Lactation protein bar is amazing as it’s filled with so many healthy ingredients.
Packed full of organic superfoods and 7g of protein, they are also a good source of fibre, which we all know is helpful after giving birth! They will also help to curb cravings and hunger that can come with burning an extra 500 calories a day.
Vegan ✔️ Dairy-free ✔️Egg-free ✔️Nut-Free ✔️ Good source of fibre & protein ✔️
•Main Energy 699kj • Energy 168cal • Fat 5.3g of which saturates 2.3g • Carbohydrate 26g of which sugars 9.1g • Fibre 2.7g • Protein 7g • Salt 0.05g
Now as well as the healthy dairy free vegan friendly ingredients it tastes yummy and does the job! I noticed that when I came on my dreaded monthly’s there would be a dip in my supply! And with teething toddler that needs extra comfort and is extremely fussy with food because of sore gums it is imperative that I have a good supply. I have been so happy with the results so far and would definitely recommend them to mothers whose not nursing as often but still want to maintain a good supply.
They contain ingredients that can help to support and increase your breast milk supply naturally. Individually wrapped they are changing bag ready, and give you a sustained and healthy energy boost. They are so yummy that I even had Taliyah wrestling me to have a bite and she enjoyed as well.
To all my mamas to be or breastfeeding mamas you are doing an amazing job and continue to make your liquid gold!
