Organic baby food brand, Happy Family Organics, has launched a line of cookies designed to support breastfeeding mothers and their specific nutritional needs.
Happy Mama Lactation Cookies are certified USDA organic, dairy-free and include a unique ‘nutrient boost blend’ to support a breastfeeding mother’s increased nutrient needs.
The blend is made up of 100mg DHA, iron, vitamin D, as well as vitamins B6 & B2, folic acid, biotin, thiamin, and iodine. Happy Family Organics says DHA is a key nutrient as 20% of a mother’s dietary DHA passes through to the baby via their breast milk and supports their brain and eye health.
The lactation support cookies are also made with traditional ingredients including oats, ground flaxseed and brewer’s yeast and come in two flavour combinations: chocolate, oat and sea salt, and cinnamon and oat.
“Our Lactation Cookies were made to support breastfeeding moms’ dietary needs, all while helping them feel confident. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re delicious too,” said Anne Laraway, CEO of Happy Family Organics.
In addition to their free online chat service, the US brand is launching an Amazon Alexa skill which will provide free expert infant feeding support, developed by an in-house team of lactation consultants and registered dietitian nutritionists.
Andie Schwartz, lactation consultant, registered dietitian nutritionist, said: “As a mum who had my own struggles with breastfeeding my first born, I looked for lactation-supporting snacks made with organic ingredients.
“These lactation cookies are dairy-free and convenient, made with oats, brewer’s yeast, flaxseed, and DHA to help support mums on their breastfeeding journey.”
Happy Mama dairy-free Lactation Cookies are currently available to purchase online and at Meijer stores nationwide for an RRP of $14.99 for 10 cookies.
