Processed and packaged foods are bad for you at any given point in time, and if you’ve just delivered a baby, your body is actually lacking out on a lot of nutrients, and given that you’re breastfeeding too, your body is losing out on a lot of essentials it needs for its survival; gobbling down a bowl of two-minute noodles isn’t exactly the kind of thing your body needs.
Make sure you keep away from all these foods after delivery (9).
- Processed, cured meats
- Salted chips, sugary biscuits and other packaged snacks.
- Ready to make meals
- Fast foods andd takeaways
- Sugary drinks like sodas and colas
All these foods are packed with unhealthy ingredients, and they’ll actually harm your body in the long run. What’s more, your baby is now at a very tender age and is more vulnerable to anything that could cause them harm.
A mother’s responsibility does not end with childbirth. After delivery, she breastfeeds and takes care of the baby.
To accomplish this, she needs to be healthy and energetic. Therefore, it is imperative to choose your lactation diet with caution.
Include healthy foods such as whole grains, pulses, seeds, fat sources, and different kinds of fruits and vegetables. Add variety to your meals to ensure you get all types of nutrition. Stay away from processed foods, sugary drinks, and fast food takeaways, which provide little nutrition and may even be unhealthy.
