After a healthy pregnancy it’s great to continue with your healthy eating and exercise when your baby is born. Breastfeeding uses a lot of your energy supplies and it’s good to have some healthy recipes to help with milk supply and overall energy.
There are three key ingredients with a long-standing reputation for boosting milk supply in breastfeeding mums: oats, flaxseed and brewers yeast.
These ingredients are combined in these delicious bars, which are easy to make and taste great.
Add an extra glass of water for each bar you eat, to help support breast milk production and efficient digestion.
