Health Tip: Get the Right Nutrients While Nursing
Beef up your diet for baby's health

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A nutrient-rich diet is essential for nursing mothers to promote a healthy supply of breast milk.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says a nursing mother's diet should include:

  • Plenty of calcium from dairy products, calcium-fortified foods, leafy green vegetables or dried beans.
  • Vitamin D through safe exposure to sunlight and fortified foods.
  • Protein by way of lean meats, fatty fish, eggs, dried beans, nuts and nut butters.
  • Iron from leafy green vegetables, meat, fish and iron-fortified cereals.
  • Folic acid from green vegetables, beans, citrus fruits, meat and fortified foods. Folic acid supplements also will do.
