While you’re breast-feeding, it’s important to remember that a well balanced diet ensures your baby receives the right amount of vitamins and minerals. You’re allowed to treat yourself once in a while, but foods that are high in saturated fats should be limited. You can easily replace high fat spreads with delicious alternatives, like avocado, or hummus. drinks with a high sugar content can be swapped for home-made smoothies and juices. Caffine passes into breast milk so it’s best to avoid drinking large amounts, especially when feeding young babies. For coffee lovers, up to three small drinks per day shouldn’t be a problem. And don’t worry, there’s no need to eliminate certain foods from your diet unless your doctor advises it. Try to choose foods that are high in nutrients and low in calories and fat, because what’s good for you, will be good for bub too.
