A customer from The Netherlands recently shared with us a recipe that is very common in her country, as a little boost for the treatment of Thrush / Oral Thrush that baby’s can experience. This recipe is for a breastfeeding mum to drink. It’s just like onion soup, so don’t let the ingredient list put you off.
If you’re plagued by recurring yeast infections and enjoy the taste of garlic and onions, here’s a tasty soup that might help.
4 cups water
2 onions, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
Ground black pepper
Place the water, garlic, and onions in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Season to taste with sage, thyme, cloves, salt, and pepper, but use the spices sparingly. Top each serving with a dollop of yogurt.

(If you are concerned about thrush in your baby, please consult with your doctor and they will be able to prescribe mediation. This soup recipe is just an extra boost)
