How can I be sure my breastmilk is nutritionally adequate?
Every bite counts when you’re breastfeeding your baby, so be prepared. Stock your kitchen with healthful foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and dairy products. Don't forget healthy convenience foods - baby carrots, ready-to-eat salads, eggs, frozen cooked shrimp, and grilled chicken breast. Remember, your baby eats what you eat.
