* At Barley + Oats we are moms, nutritionists, chefs + passionate females, but we are not doctors. While studies show that micronutrient-rich diets and those that eliminate certain foods can assist with all of the above benefits, every body and every baby is different. Your results are also impacted significantly by what else you are eating besides Barley + Oats. Therefore, we cannot guarantee these benefits. For your safety, as always, please contact your healthcare provider before making any major dietary changes.
