ADD INS: oats contain plant estrogens which are associated with increasing and supporting milk supply, they contain the fibre Beta-glucan, which also acts like a galactagogue (increases milk supply) as well as a beneficial fibre for digestive health.

THE BENEFITS:

Sesame seeds (tahini) are an extremely rich source of calcium and contain estrogen like plant properties that can enhance breastmilk whilst also replenishing mother’s calcium stores. Flaxseeds also contain phytoestrogens and can support breastmilk supply whilst providing essential fatty acids for baby’s neurological development. Almonds are high in proteins and fatty acids and are also considered galactagogues, which can increase milk supply.
