7 Foods Every Breastfeeding Mom Should Eat Now

  1. Dark, Leafy Greens

Not surprisingly, salad tops another nutritional list. Dark, leafy greens are so nutrient dense, you can never go wrong with a good salad – topped with a healthy dressing of course!

Time to start chomping on those dark leafy greens like spinach, Swiss chard and kale to give yourself an iron boost, plus “they contain optimal nutrients” for breastfeeding, according to Capriglione. “Top cooked or raw leafy greens with an acid like lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to get the most iron benefits,” she suggests.

So break out the salad kits! Mix and match the toppings to keep things fresh and interesting. A good place to start would be a spinach and kale salad topped with salmon, almonds, and fennel!
