What makes a pregnancy cookie different from a regular cookie?


Try Googling cookie recipes that have the word pregnancy, labor or lactation in the title. You’ll be amazed at what you find! There’s so many out there. What’s the difference between a ‘pregnancy cookie’ and a regular cookie? Do ‘labor cookies’ really make your labor begin? Will lactation muffins make you produce more milk?

I decided to explore the answer to these questions and here’s what I found. In fact, I have my own version of a great pregnancy cookie. Take a listen.

The great thing about the healthy snacks you’re making for yourself during pregnancy is this – they’ll be perfect for your child when they’re a little older. My Really Good Oatmeal Cookies have been a regular on the McKitrick list of favorites for years!

Here’s the recipe so you can try them yourself. If you like oatmeal cookies, I bet you’ll like them. 😍
