While many women claim breastfeeding helps them shed kilos, others find that they are ravenous!
Making milk, while also sleep deprived is no joke! And many women crave sweet things to give themselves a little energy boost.
So no wonder so many of us nursing mammas turn to biscuits and chocolate bars – after all, they’re quick and easy to consume. It’s not easy to make a heap of healthy snacks while you’ve got a demanding baby cluster feeding!
Healthy Mummy Super Coach and mum of four Sascha Farley, who has lost 30kg through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, shares her favourite healthy snacks for when she’s breastfeeding.
The hunger you feel when breastfeeding is like nothing else! It’s like, ‘If I don’t eat right now, I might pass out’!
Thankfully, with The Healthy Mummy app, I have so many options at my finger tips. For a while, I was reaching for the easiest thing but found I was never satisfied. I was overeating and felt even more tired than I was.
That’s why eating the right foods is essential for mum and Bub! I’m currently breastfeeding my fourth baby Remi and have found these to be lifesaving snacks that fill me up and also I can eat them with one hand!
