When Lisa Sanguedolce, owner of Juli's Cookie Co & Le Dolci Bakery & Culinary Classroom in Toronto had her baby in 2018, she researched everything and anything to help her breastfeed. She found recipes for lactation cookies through her mom community but was too tired to bake them so she drove to the USA to buy them. Although this is only a two hour drive, Lisa wasn't thinking as after one journey, her head baker said, "why don't we make these cookies for you at the bakery?" And so it all began. Her bakery biz had a cookie baby.
With her amazing team, a delicious recipe was crafted, tested and enjoyed and she began to share it with her friends and her mom-networks created by friend and lactation consultant Catherine Pestl.
Many years before when Lisa was single and not thinking of babies or breastfeeding, Catherine told her that there was a real demand for delicious and tasty products for breastfeeding mothers. Fast forward when Lisa had her baby, she gave Catherine a call again and understood what she was talking about!
A portion of proceeds from EVERY box sold will go to help support breastfeeding education in North America.
Two of our favourite organizations that we are donating to in 2021 and 2022 are La Leche Leauge Canada and La Leche League USA which have both supported Lisa here in our local chapter and many moms have used their support across North America, and let's not forget their amazing book, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, which Lisa highly recommends.
Our future commitments include an in person education sessions with our close friend and Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Catherine Pestl and host workshops locally with one of our fave Mama spots West End Mamas here in Toronto and similar organizations across North America.
