The power of OATS! Gluten free, organic whole oats are a staple ingredient in all of our recipes and a powerhouse of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Just one cup of oats provide 21 percent of our daily requirement of protein, and 32 percent of the recommended daily allowance of fiber. And if you are a new mom, oats are well known for their pro-lactating qualities, providing the necessary iron a breastfeeding mom needs to support and maintain her milk supply. Oatmeal may affect breast milk supply in a number of ways. An important feature of oatmeal is that it is a source of iron. When your maternal iron levels are low, or you are anemic, your milk supply could decrease. Increasing iron intake could help increase milk supply. Oatmeal is also a comfort food for some women, and when a nursing mom is relaxed and comfortable, let-down and milk supply increase.*Please be aware that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them.
Flex your FLAX knowledge! Flaxseed not only shares the fibrous and pro-lactating benefits of oats, it is also full of very necessary omega fatty acids for both mothers and babies. Omegas are critical for the brain development & growth of little ones. Flaxseed contains phytoestrogens, a plant-based compound that can mildly mimic estrogen. Phytoestrogens are believed to have potential in helping to protect against a variety of health disorders. In addition to flaxseed’s lactogenic properties, they are great source of fiber, another important need for nursing mothers.
