Postpartum depletion is a real thing, where a woman's body loses many vital nutrients during pregnancy, labor, and breastfeeding. Some new theories even suggest that the effects of nutrient loss in a mother's body can have consequences even up to a decade after giving birth. With the changing lifestyles and lack of extensive family support, it is becoming harder for many mothers to take care of their own nutrition, but it is so very essential, both for the mom and the newborn.
At Freshly Moms, our philosophy is 'lactation through nutrition'. We don't want to offer empty calories which may work to increase your milk supply, but has no other benefits. It is hard to find breastfeeding supporting snacks that are not loaded with sugar and butter to mask the unnatural flavors of brewers yeast and other artificial ingredients. We wanted to keep things simple, and use ingredients that have been proven to support healthy breastfeeding, but without overloading new mothers' fragile bodies with things they don't need. You will never find any unnecessary refined sugars, butter, artificial flavors or sweeteners in our products. We promise.
Our recipes are inspired from cultures which have a tradition of focused postpartum care for mothers. The use of these ingredients have been tested and refined over hundreds of years for providing new mothers with the most important nutrients during her recovery. However, we didn't stop at that. We verified the nutritional content of each ingredient to scientifically establish its benefits before including it in our products. We did all the reading, research and verification (basically all the not-so-interesting stuff), so you don't have to!
A mother's milk is rich in fatty acids like lauric acid, capric acid and omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for babies. Studies show that the presence of these 'healthy fats' in breast-milk increases significantly (up to 3 times) within hours when mothers consume diet rich in such fats. Coconut and walnuts are great source of these fatty acids, and help in improving the quality of breast-milk. Freshly Moms lactation granola is designed to provide nutrition to the mother and the baby along with supporting lactation.
All our snacks are ready to eat. The hot cereal just needs to be boiled in milk for 3-5 minutes. Khichadi may need 30-40 min of cooking time, though it is mostly just sitting on the burner, with less than 5 minutes of involved time.
Most of the snacks could be consumed anytime between meals or when you are craving for it. We also recommend saving some for those overnight shifts :). The Hot Cereal is the best way to start your day along with a cup of Moringa Tea. Khichari can be had either for lunch or dinner. We recommend having Turmeric Ginger Latte before bedtime.
Yes! We love to add it in our smoothie bowls, pancakes, nut butters, and have it with warm milk with some honey/dates. You may even use it in baking to make lactation bites, or cookies!
