Healthy eating when breastfeeding

Are you breastfeeding at the moment?

Ile time unanyonyesha mtoi wako, ni necessary to keep your body strong for yourself and your baby. 

Dairy products kama yoghurt, milk  or cheese  are an important part of  breastfeeding. Also, starchy foods such as bread , potato , pasta  and rice  ni a healthy option too.

Ni poa pia kuboost your energy as a new mum by taking foods rich in iron kama beef , liver, spinach na legumes, for example beans, njahi na ndengu.

Fish  and eggs  ziko rich in protein na zitakusaidia kumaintain your own body and provide protein for the baby in your breastmilk.

You can never have enough of fruits , fresh juice and water , kwa hivyo, take as much as you can!

Remember: Do not take any medication while breastfeeding without checking with your doctor first!
