Lactoboost by Spice Carriage won the National Bronze Award in the start-up category at WCIC Prathibhabisheka Award ceremony organized by the Women’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce (WCIC) of Sri Lanka.

‘Lactoboost Lactation Cookies’ are Spice Carriage’s main product and these nutritious cookies are especially made for lactating mothers. They assist in increasing breast milk supply using natural ingredients such as oats, flax seeds, and nutritional yeast, which are also super-foods. Lactoboost cookies are made without the use of any artificial colorings, flavorings, or preservatives and are also a great low-sugar, snack for the whole family.
Lactoboost cookies can be purchased from the Healthguard Pharmacy at Dharmapala Mawatha, Ninewells Hospital Pharmacy, Joseph Fraser Memorial Hospital Pharmacy and Brunch Lane by Lactoboost, their own flagship restaurant which also provides freshly prepared Lactoboost dishes for breastfeeding mothers.
They also offer a range of brunch-themed meals and snacks which are available for delivery through Uber Eats and PickMe food as well. “Lactoboost was created based on my personal experience. When I had my first baby, I had a difficult time breastfeeding due to low milk supply. I tried everything recommended by doctors and lactation consultants and when all else failed, I found this solution, and it worked. I wanted to share this with others in my position and started to produce these cookies at home, which evolved into a small business,” Lasni Silva said.
