Super Food For Mum and Bub

May 17, 2017

Superfood for mum and bub 

Include these foods in your diet to boost your energy, immunity, and wellbeing, while at the same time providing your breastfed baby with the nutrition needed for proper growth and development.

1. Grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes

These provide you with natural fibre, which aids digestion. They deliver iron, calcium, and protein. Sprinkle sesame seeds liberally on salads to add magnesium, manganese, copper and phosphorus.

2. Green vegetables

Broccoli and spinach, and the trendy kale, also deliver calcium, iron and other essential nutrients.

3. Oily fish

The DHA and oils found in salmon in particular aid the growth of your baby’s nervous system, and they are great for you as well!

4. Fruits are sweet

Apricots provide fibre, as well as vitamins A and C, and potassium - fresh or dried are both great. To add some more sweetness to your diet, include dates.

5. Brown rice

When give a choice, always opt for brown rice over white to get more fibre and longer sustained energy.

6. Yoghurt

An ideal dessert for breastfeeding mums as it provides calcium and some extra protein.

There are lots more superfoods you can try, but including those above in your diet is a great start to becoming a healthier you.
