eating for two. When you are breastfeeding, you still need those extra calories so that you can nourish yourself and produce enough milk to feed your baby. Furthermore, you need to make sure that your milk is full of good stuff that your baby needs, not crap like McDonalds.
In come the snacks! Snacks are an easy way to get the good stuff that you need.
Breastfeeding Super Snack #1:
- Yogurt (preferably made from whole milk)
- Cut up bananas, strawberries, or a handful of blueberries
Easy! Fast! Sweet and satisfying!
Bonus: Many women swear by oats (the main ingredient in granola) for increasing their milk supply.
Also: Please buy organic fruit, especially strawberries, as pesticides pass through into breast milk.
Yogurt with granola and berries is my breastfeeding snack of choice!
