As a nursing mom, I know how challenging it can be at times to be able to produce enough milk for your baby. I struggled a bit with my youngest and needed a little help to get my supply back up. There are countless teas, herbal supplements etc. that are on the market that can help you to achieve this... but I wanted something that was delicious and enjoyable to consume to give myself that milk boost!
After going through my own experience and talking with other moms who went through their own struggles... I began to do some research of my own. I decided to do some experimenting in my own kitchen! I found something that really worked for me and I wanted to be able to share this with all of the other moms in my local community!
Our mission at Momnoms is to create something freshly made, delicious and nourishing for moms that will naturally help to increase milk supply for her baby. We also want to be able to provide ALL moms (breastfeeding or not) with locally made treats that they can feel good about eating! We use natural and organic ingredients and offer more than just lactation cookies, check out our menu and see for yourself :)
We are proud to say that we use only the most wholesome, natural and organic ingredients that we can find for all of our baked goods and treats! We use a combination of organic flour and whole wheat flour from Arva Flour Mills. We love to support local and what better way than to use flour that's milled so close to London!
All of our baked goods contain 3 natural galactagogues (organic flax, organic oats and brewer's yeast) that help increase lactation in Moms.
Taste the difference.
We know that there are other lactation cookies on the market, but none of them are baked fresh locally. There are no preservatives or additives. Just simple, natural and organic ingredients! We bake everything in small batches to ensure the highest quality possible.
Everything we make can be enjoyed by the whole family.* So do not fret, hubby and the kids will not start lactating after eating one of our cookies or treats ;) We wanted to create something that moms would feel good about eating and sharing with their kids knowing that it is a healthier alternative to other treats out there!
If you already know me you know that I absolutely love food and have a passion for creating new things in the kitchen. Before I became a mom, I used to run my own little business "Petit Cupcakes" where I had the pleasure of catering numerous weddings, special events and birthday parties in London and surrounding area. It was a lot of fun and I was even lucky enough to be featured on the #1 Cupcake Blog "Cupcakes Take the Cake" a few times as well ;)
After years of being out of the baking game, I wanted to make a 'comeback' with something new and with a greater purpose. I'm a strong believer in moms helping moms and supporting one another. I create small batch lactation cookies, as well as other baked goods and treats here in London, Ontario. I wanted to share these lactation treats with other moms to see if this might help them to boost or maintain their milk supply too!
*Most of our products contain brewer's yeast. If you are pregnant or taking medication to treat diabetes it is recommended that you speak with a healthcare professional before consuming brewer's yeast. Some of our products do contain nuts so although the cookies do not list nuts as an ingredient they may come in contact with those allergens.
