Diet, nutrition and breastfeeding

Eating a healthy diet is always important, but it is especially important when you are breastfeeding. When you are breastfeeding, your body requires extra energy and nutrients particularly protein, calcium, iron and vitamins so it is important your diet supplies the nutrients you need.  Not only are these nutrients essential to produce breastmilk, they are also important for your own health and wellbeing.
