Feeding your changing body
Caring for your baby or toddler requires energy. Lots of it! And when you’re breastfeeding you need extra nutrients, vitamins and minerals for both you and your little one.
During breastfeeding your nutrient needs differ to when you were pregnant - you need nutrients for yourself and to support breastmilk production to keep your tiny human happy and healthy.
Nutrient depletion from pregnancy and childbirth is common, this combined with sleep deprivation and the demands of caring for a little one can leave many women struggling to get what they need.
Key nutrients can be found in the whole foods you eat, so eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will help you get the nutrients you need. Not only that, research tells us that mums who eat more fruit and veggies breast-feed for longer.
Not only do you need more nutrients when breastfeeding but you burn more energy, so adding healthy foods and proteins into your diet will help fuel your breastfeeding journey.
This is why we have created our 100% pure whole food nutrient powders, to support your nutrient needs while breastfeeding and help you through the long days and nights .
