Your body can usually ensure your breast milk provides optimal nutrition for
your baby even when your diet is less than perfect. While
this is good news for
your baby, it can deplete your reserves of vital nutrients, which can potentially jeopardize your health. Eileen Behan, R.D., author of “Eat Well, Lose Weight While Breastfeeding,” advises breastfeeding moms to eat a healthy, well-rounded diet rich in Omega-3, seafood and fruits and veggies.
