Moms That Move Campaign


milkmakers, a Seattle-based company that makes lactation cookies, recently introduced Moms That Move - a campaign designed to help parents set and meet goals for physical activity and healthy living.

Created by Emily Kane, founder and owner of milkmakers and mother of three young children, the challenge is designed to encourage new parents to get active again when it seems overwhelming to find the time and motivation to do so. By setting small, achievable goals, parents can take baby steps and start creating habits in activity and eating choices that lead to healthier lifestyles, making parents good role models for their children. Kane also discusses the Moms That Move campaign in a video on YouTube.

milkmakers will kick off the Moms That Move campaign with a live question-and-answer session on January 19, 9-10am Pacific Time, on the milkmakers Facebook page. The Q&A will feature lactation consultant Renee Beebe, M.Ed., IBCLC, and nutritionist Ashley Besecker, RD, CD answering posted questions about physical activity while breastfeeding, proper nutrition, and many other topics related to breastfeeding, nutrition, and healthy living. Following the live Q&A, milkmakers will facilitate an on-going, month-long Moms That Move conversation on the Facebook page.
