What Foods Should I be Eating During Breastfeeding?

    Food groups that are nutrient-rich and varied diet.

    Ideally, you should try to opt for a nutrient-rich, varied diet that consists of the following food groups:

    • Fatty fish, such as salmon 
    • Lean meats and poultry
    • Healthy fats, such as avocados and greek yoghurt, eggs, and olive oil
    • Fibre-rich starches, such as sweet potatoes, oats, beans, buckwheat
    • Nuts and seeds

    Remember that every food should be eaten in moderation, and try to find healthy replacements for any unhealthy pregnancy cravings. If you have any dietary restrictions, speak to your doctor to discuss the best diet during your pregnancy.
