Healthy no-bake lactation bites

These yummy no-bake lactation bites are perfect for a nursing mom or anyone who needs a healthy, hearty, handy boost of energy!


 

I know I’m not alone when I say breastfeeding is hard. It’s one of the most amazing things we can do for our babies as moms, but also can be the most exhausting, frustrating and time-consuming. I’m 2 months into my breastfeeding and it has been a rollercoaster already. I had a very tough time producing enough milk 1 month in to it so I took it under my own hands to ask around research and do something about it. Now I cant say that these are ground breaking and your milk will flow but they will certainly add to helping with the production. Not only will they aid help they are a very healthy on the go snack which takes less than 10mins to wiz up, which all new mums need is quick and simple recipes. I love to snack on these bites specially in my night time feeds as I don't want to be eating anything heavy so this is the perfect snack.
