This malunggay lactation ice cream helps moms in their breastfeeding journey

As mothers dive into breastfeeding, this path is filled with triumphant moments and challenges. They’re not alone on this journey as Fog City Creamery offers a delicious helping hand–lactation ice cream with malunggay.

UNICEF Philippines' 2017 data highlights the importance of early breastfeeding initiation, with an encouraging 57% of infants being breastfed within the first hour after birth. This initial support is crucial for both mothers and babies. However, the numbers dip to around 34% for continued exclusive breastfeeding from 0 to 6 months. This disparity underscores many mothers’ challenges in maintaining exclusive breastfeeding, such as managing low milk supply and work demands.

“We partnered with Vpharma and used its Mega-Malunggay and Herbilogy products to formulate our lactation ice cream flavors, enriched with galactagogues, such as fenugreek, oats, malunggay, and malt, to enhance milk production, and achieve breastfeeding goals,” Edy Gamboa -Liu, managing director of Fog City Creamery, said.

Beyond nourishment, Fog City Creamery’s lactation ice cream is a gesture of self-care. You are taking a moment for yourself amidst the beautiful chaos of motherhood, as every spoonful is a celebration of your dedication to your baby and a tribute to the incredible bond you're building through breastfeeding.

Fog City Creamery’s lactation ice cream flavors–Mega-Malunggay, Herbilogy Breastfeeding Milk Tea, and Herbilogy Choco Malt Oat Praline with Fenugreek–are available at P1 Power Plant Mall in Makati City or by order via 0917 883 3344 or fogcitycreamery@gmail.com.
