For every new mom, we make a few packs of wholesome oatmeal to take to their first postpartum appointment. Why?
Well, because oatmeal is an awesome whole crain that lowers cholesterol. It is a super food, so while you may or may not be breastfeeding, it is just really healthy to incorporate into your every day routine.
Add in spices, nuts, seeds and a bit of sweetness...it's the perfect breakfast for a new mom who may have been up all night cluster feeding a growing newborn, tending to older children, trying to remember to sleep.
And, oh yeah...eat to fuel her body. Being a mom is exhausting, so if we can help by bringing breakfast...by all means we will!
