What makes this berry pavlova the perfect snack  for breastfeeding mums?

Our mini berry pavlova is topped with a protein rich blend of ricotta & greek yoghurt and mixed berries including strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Protein is a a fantastic macronutrient to keep your blood sugar stable through the day and reduce that constant breastfeeding hunger. Berries, are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and folate to support your energy and immune system while breastfeeding.  

Protein and Blood Sugar Balance

Protein is a macronutrient that is vital to help keep your blood sugar levels balanced throughout the day. When you eat protein, it helps to slow down absorption of glucose and other sugars found in food, into the bloodstream. This slower release of sugar, prevents spikes in blood sugar levels, providing a more stable energy source for you while breastfeeding. 

Our Lactation Boost Breastfeeding Protein Powder is a perfect addition into your diet while breastfeeding, as it contains 13.6g of collagen protein alongside calcium, iodine, iron and B-vitamins to balance your blood sugar, boost your energy and increase your milk supply. 

What are the benefits of balancing blood sugar levels while breastfeeding?

Maintaining stable blood sugar levels is crucial for breastfeeding mums as it can help prevent energy crashes, mood swings, and late night sugar cravings.  By including high protein, nutrient-dense snacks like this mini berry pavlova, you will help keep your blood sugar balanced throughout the day, preventing that common 3pm energy crash. By including adequate protein in your diet while breastfeeding, you'll ensure your blood sugar stays stable which will also help to maintain your milk supply.
