Losing pregnancy weight can be a challenging prospect for many women because busy, active mums require energy to breastfeed, look after kids, work and generally ‘run the world’.
As a result, mothers need to include filling, nutritious snacks into their healthy eating plan to ensure their energy levels don’t drop to dangerously low levels, which isn’t good for overall health, metabolic function or sustainable weight loss.
Regular snacking helps to regulate blood sugar levels, balance the metabolism and stave off cravings, and these delicious Coco-Vanilla Protein Bites are a great snacking option the whole family will love.
Packed with nuts and coconut, these tasty bites are high in protein (an essential part of most weight loss plans) and don’t require baking so are super quick to prepare.
