Although we are not revealing our recipe and baking processes for our foods, we are aware that as a breastfeeding mother you care about your own diet and what nutrients you will be passing through your milk to your baby. Also, because individuals may be affected by various foods if there is a history of allergies, we want to share what’s in our foods, so you can decide if they are appropriate for you or somebody you care about. If you need more specific nutritional information, please email email@example.com.
As a nourishing snack, an analysis (Victoria University, Melbourne 2020), found that our Boobie Foods can be a helpful nutritional complement to a healthy balanced diet. Boobie Bikkies supply Folate (8% RDI), Iron (8.7% RDI in a single gluten free biscuit), Magnesium (10.7% RDI per biscuit) and Phosphorous (7.6% RDI). Based on a recommended serving of two biscuits a day, Boobie Bikkies meet the RDI for Thiamine(B1) and Niacin(B2). Our Gluten free bikkies are a good source of Vitamin E (9.2mg in two biscuits, with the RDI stated as 10mg per day) and our Orange and Vanilla Boobie Bikkies are a good source of Folate. Vitamin E is particularly high in our Gluten Free biscuits (9.2mg in two biscuits, with the RDI stated as 10mg per day).
Because we know that everything mothers eat will be passed to their baby through breast milk, Boobie Bikkies® are made from only natural ingredients with no preservatives, additives or ‘unhelpful’ foods such as chocolate (which may cause unsettled behaviour) that can pass through your milk. Breastfeeding burns 500 or more calories a day!! Breastfeeding mums can get very hungry!
What's in our Boobie Bikkies?
Our ‘traditional’ Boobie Bikkies® are made with oats, wholemeal flour, raw sugar, free range eggs, organic flaxseed, Brewer’s Yeast, sunflower oil and butter.
Note: although dairy protein can cause some babies to become unsettled, butter is fat rather than protein, so unless there is a family history of dairy allergies, butter is usually not a problem and, unlike margarine, does not contain any artificial additives. However, if you have concerns that your baby may be sensitive, check out our Gluten & Dairy free Boobie Bikkies® lactation cookies.
