Healthy breastfeeding diet

The most important thing is to include a wide variety of fresh, healthy foods in your breastfeeding diet.

If you think something you’re eating is affecting your baby through your breast milk, talk to your GP or health visitor, or call the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212.
