The cookies are gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO and contain three milk enhancing supplements known as “galactagogues”. The combination of brewer’s (nutritional) yeast, oats and flax helps give moms same day to next day milk increases after eating them.

About Stork and Dove
We started Booby Boons because of a widely unspoken of issue, records show close to 1/3 of Canadian moms have problems with insufficient breast milk supply. I was blown away to hear how big of an issue this really was -and the wheels started turning! How can we make something that was delicious, nutritious and also increases milk supply? My business partner Claudia (mom to 4!) actually used to mix “galactagogues” (milk enhancing supplements) into various foods for her production levels.
We then worked with lactation consultants, naturopaths, nutritionists and most importantly moms to test the effects at all points in their breastfeeding cycle. When we played with the 3 galactagogues- brewer’s (nutritional) yeast, oats and flax, moms were reporting same day increases! Putting it into a cookie base was a no brainer – who doesn’t love a cookie. To keep the cookies healthy (but still mouth watering and delicious) we made them gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free and non-GMO.
In just one year from its launch our little brand grew to national retailers, we are now stocked in places like Babies R Us, we will soon be in Loblaws and we have Shoppers Drug Mart which will roll this out to 100 stores! I am personally only 24 years old and I started working on the company/idea while I was still in University. It was definitely not the “career path” I envisioned for myself but it brings me to tears knowing how many moms Stork and Dove is helping! There is no greater feeling than knowing you are helping a parent shape and nurture this angelic, precious, new addition to their family.
This is also just the beginning – we will be launching a new flavour in the coming month and 3 new teas!
