Breast Milk Cheese Angers La Leche LeaderMadeline Holler
Situations like the following make La Leche League seem stern, humorless and lactationally pedantic. Some members of the breastfeeding support group are scolding New York chef Daniel Angerer for turning his wife’s breast milk into cheese.
No, it’s not because his extreme locavore offerings are gagging those of us too small-minded to crave our own curdled leftovers. Rather, his cheese balls are, they say to DNAInfo.com, taking food from the mouths of babies.
“Breast milk is for babies,” said Lorretta McCallister, a spokesperson for the organization. “We’re all about breast milk but for breast-feeding babies — for the baby’s nourishment, not adults.”
