In order for breastfeeding moms to maintain their milk supply, it’s important to remain healthy and hydrated. However, it can be a challenge for any mom to sit down for a full meal, so here are some healthy snack options to keep you energized throughout the day. Here are 4 NO Bake Milk Supply Boosting nutrient rich snacks that are beneficial for mom and baby.
1. Lactation Energy Bites made of oatmeal, nut butter, coconut & chocolate chips are a favorite. I love the recipe from Smashed Peas & Carrots, you can find it here . If you’re looking to put a twist on this traditional favorite, consider adding dried blueberries or raisins in lieu of the chocolate chips!
2. Antioxidant Smoothie with blueberries and leafy greens- this simple mix is known to boost breast milk supply, that’s why we love this simple recipe from The Nourished
3. Afternoon Tea and an oatmeal raisin cookie, we like this soothing all natural tea from Bundle Organics and here’s a great oatmeal raisin cookie recipe from Genius Kitchen. Oatmeal is a galactagogue that helps sustain milk production.
4. Greek Yogurt with Granola Blueberries. If you’re like me, you enjoy stocking up on fast snack faves. That’s why you’ll find me purchasing a 20 pack of Chobani Greek Yogurt from Costco and topping it with homemade granola. Yum, so quick and easy!

Like many moms before her, Melissa cradled her hungry, crying baby as she clumsily adjusted her bra and sat uncomfortably holding up her shirt. She needed a better solution, so she created LatchPal, the first nursing clip of its kind.
LatchPal is a breastfeeding shirt clip that holds up a mother’s shirt during breastfeeding. It eliminates shirt re-positioning and feeding disruptions. LatchPal was designed with moms in mind. The multi-use solution only requires one hand to latch. It’s a must-have breastfeeding accessory and essential for post-partum moms, pumping moms, and nursing in public.
