Hi & warmest greetings from us in The Leaky Munch!
The Leaky Munch was created especially for nursing mothers because we understand how important it is for a mom to breastfeed and give babies the best nutrition possible. We have been there!
The Leaky Munch is family run starting off with siblings swapping tips and tricks to boost our milk supplies while nursing our little ones. The struggle is real! Many successfully breastfed little toddlers later, what started as a home recipe quickly expanded as more friends started putting in requests. We finally decided to share them out here for all you nursing mothers too!
Our cookies are the perfect combination of delicious goodness and lactation boosting wrapped in milk wishes and sprinkles of love for you and your bundle of joy. We use only the freshest quality ingredients and are preservatives free. From delicious gooey chocolate chips to sweet raisins and tangy cranberries.
We are continuously on the lookout for new tastes for our cookies while maintaining their awesome milk boosting effects. We also try to keep an eye out on the calories providing the healthier alternatives for those nursing snacks. We hope you enjoy our cookies as much as we enjoyed making them!
We here in The Leaky Munch hope you have a wonderful and successful breastfeeding journey.
