Did you know that freeze-drying retains the nutritional content in breast milk and is shelf-stable for up to three years? That means breast milk powder can also boost the nutrient content of your child’s foods as they get older and start to eat solids. Here are a few of our favourite ways to use freeze-dried breast milk as your kid’s superfood:
If you're bub is going through a picky phase and only touching one dish on their plate; elevate that items nutrition by sprinkling your freeze-dried milk on top or use it in recipes that typically use milk as an ingredient.
Breast milk contains large amounts of secretory IgA, or antibodies that have formed as a result of a mother’s past exposure to certain infectious diseases. Incorporating freeze-dried breast milk into your kid’s foods may help give their immune systems an extra boost of fighting power when they’re knocked out with a cold or stomach bug.
Breast milk is made up of easy-to-digest protein and carbohydrates perfect for a baby’s immature digestive system. When a baby is first introduced to solid foods, however, they often experience some gastrointestinal discomfort as their newly formed GI tracts adjust to a whole range of new dietary inclusions. While this is a very common (and natural) experience, we suggest easing your baby’s tummy by infusing freeze-dried breast milk powder into their meals.
