Eating and drinking is very important during labor. These easy protein bites have our favorite go-to ingredients; oats, honey and peanut butter. Once labor becomes active, moms tend to lose their appetite, so something easy and quick is ideal.
These protein bites would also be great to snack on postpartum. The oats help boost milk supply.
