7 Foods Every Breastfeeding Mom Should Eat Now

Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby.

It creates a unique bond between mom and baby while providing baby with nutrition that cannot be matched by even the most advanced formulas.

But while it seems like a simple task, many moms struggle to breastfeed or stress out about what they are eating and if baby is getting enough.

Here are seven foods every mom should add to her diet today!

Amanda Capriglione, a registered and certified dietitian nutritionist, created this list to ensure every breastfeeding mom gets the nutrition she needs to give her baby the absolute best.

  1. Almonds

Breastfeeding requires a lot of calcium and protein. Both are big components in breastmilk to help baby grow strong bones and healthy muscles.

 “Breast milk contains lots of calcium, so it’s vital that moms replenish their supply to prevent their bones from calcium depletion. Add almonds to yogurt for a double whammy calcium snack,’ Capriglione suggests.”
