Nutritional Guideline giving your baby a gentle adjustment to the foods in your milk. 70% of your diet transfers to the baby.

A mother’s milk is pure and natural sustenance for baby. Breast milk is also living fluid that constantly changes to meet demands of a baby. In fact, the composition of breast milk changes with every feed and will vary according to the time of the day you feed. Being breastfed has advantages that reach into adulthood. Science is only beginning to learn what these benefits are.


The foods you eat can influence the components and volume of your breast milk; therefore mothers need to feed themselves a well-balanced diet filled with fresh and locally grown foods whenever possible to ensure optimal milk production.
