Diet for Nursing Mothers

Pregnancy and lactation are times when a baby draws nutrition from the mother. It is a time to take extra care of your diet and make sure that you give the best to your baby! Our special diet meets the nutrient requirements of lactating mothers and ensures you feel fit and healthy during this time.

The diet during this period should simply be a continuation of the healthy dietary choices made during pregnancy. A well-balanced meal which provides all the necessary nutrients is more beneficial than one which merely provides more energy due to the addition of lots of 'ghee'.

Be sure to include plenty of vegetables, green leaves, fruits along with whole grains and legumes and foods high in calcium to provide all the different nutrients required.
