Make More Breast Milk with Snappy Snacks

Improve Milk Supply with lactation cookies and brownies

Did you know eating certain things will increase milk production? These things are called “galactagogues”. Don’t ask me to pronounce that in real life. Foods like oatmeal, sesame seeds, fenugreek, flax and ginger will all help milk supply.

Snappy Snacks is a Canadian company that sells dry mixes which contain all those awesome ingredients all in one convenient package. This means a new mom can grab a package of Snappy Snacks, dump the dry mix in a bowl, add a half cup of butter and an egg and make either cookies or brownies. It’s really so simple. If someone asked me to bake from a recipe in the weeks following the birth of my son I would have laughed in their face! You can read my review of Snappy Snacks here.

My dear sister-in-law welcomed a tiny little peanut into the world just before Christmas. She was determined to breast feed her little girl from the moment she got pregnant. She read books and asked me for advice but nothing could really prepare her for breast feeding like the experience its self. Luckily Robyn had the whole line of Snappy Snacks on hand for that first growth spurt. Between a week and 10 days old, babies usually go through a growth spurt that is very noticeable when you are breast feeding. The baby will be super hungry sending your body into milk making mode. Not only will you feel super tired but you’ll be very hungry, too. Making milk burns a lot of calories. BONUS!

So Robyn got in the kitchen and made up all her cookies and brownies and filled her freezer up. I know she had a rough go in the beginning but Snappy Snacks was there to keep her fuelled with things that help to naturally encourage milk production. She’s now successfully feeding her little one exclusively with breast milk. It wasn’t easy but she got through the hardest part with the help of Snappy Snacks and she couldn’t be happier. Sometimes all we need is a little helping hand.

My go to gift for baby showers is now Snappy Snacks dry mixes. They will last in the pantry for up to a year so whenever a mom runs into supply issues she can bust out her mix. You can find Snappy Snacks in these stores across Canada! They make Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, Raisin Spice Mix, and Double Chocolate Brownie Mix.

How was your breast feeding experience? What would you do different if you had a do over?

  • I always wondered how to make these types of cookies! I just used Fenugreek tablets while nursing and that typically helped keep my supply up 🙂 But cookies sound like a much better option 😉

    oh so awesome!

  • I remember changing my diet specifically for breastfeeding …if only more women knew that their diet has such a big part of their production I am sure they wouldn’t end the flight so early. Pinned your post and glad to have found your post on Come Along Ponds 🙂

  • I used to eat lots of oatmeal and drink certain teas when I was breastfeeding. Fortunately, I never had a low supply, but it would have been fun to experiment with cookies! Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!

  • YAY for a Canadian company!! I’m definitely checking them out next time I’m pregnant! I had a challenge with supply when I was breastfeeding and was only able to make it to 6 months… I hope to do better next time but I’m comfortable with the amount that I gave my daughter too 🙂
