Your diet is essential while breastfeeding.

Not only does your diet influence your energy & wellbeing as a breastfeeding mum, it also impacts your milk supply & nutritional composition of your breastmilk.

  • Promotes Growth

    Your baby depends on your dietary intake of iodine, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A & choline to receive these in your breastmilk, supporting growth.

  • Brain Function

    Your dietary intake of omega-3, DHA & choline, influences levels in your breastmilk, with higher intake linked to improved vision, memory & brain growth.

  • Thyroid Health

    If you have low intake of iodine & selenium, you may have an increased risk of thyroid dysfunction, impacting your ability to establish your milk supply.

  • Bone Loss

    Up to 300mg of calcium is transferred daily from your bones to breastmilk. Low intake of calcium while breastfeeding may increase bone loss, increasing risk of osteoporosis.

  • Protein Content

    Breastfeeding mums who eat higher levels of protein in their daily diet, have increased bioavailability of protein & amino acids in their breastmilk.

  • Iron & Milk Supply

    Minimal iron is transferred through your breastmilk, however if you are iron deficient, this can influence your ability to establish your milk supply.

  • Reduces Fussy Eating

    A varied breastfeeding diet, with different flavours exposes your baby to new flavours, reducing fussy eating when starting solids.

  • Reduces Risk of Allergies

    Breastfed babies exposed to common food allergens through breastmilk, have lower rates of food allergies when beginning solids.
