5 of the best ingredients for breastfeeding

  • Written by We are Wylde


Although many mums look forward to indulging in their diets after their babies are born, our diets still affect the quality of our breastmilk for those mums who are breast feeding. Ensuring you are continuing to have a healthy, balanced diet might assist in the production and quality of your breast milk. Here are 5 ingredients that are perfect for breastfeeding mums to maximise their experience:

Nuts and Trail Mix

The perfect easy and healthy on-the-go snack for the busy mama! Almonds, walnuts and other nuts are a great source of protein, fibre, magnesium. They also contain omega-3s and healthy fats that are beneficial to the mum and baby during breastfeeding.

Milk Thistle

Benefits of including milk thistle in your diet include an increase of breast milk production, assists with detoxifying the body and supports a healthy liver function. Along with all these wonderful benefits, milk thistle also acts as a great source of antioxidants as well as providing anti-ageing affects to support healthy skin.

Sweet Potatoes

Just another great food for boosting milk production. It’s also a great carbohydrate to replenish your potassium and energy. Try baking them for dinner with your favourite toppings!

Fenugreek

Fenugreek is another wonderful ingredient to add to your diet. It can help increase breast milk production along with regulating blood sugar levels. Given its high fibre content, fenugreek also helps to reduce constipation and might even lower your PMS symptoms as a result of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Cumin Seeds

A great spice to boost your milk supply. It’s also effective at improving digestion that may cause discomfort to the baby.
