Boiled Eggs

In addition to having a high protein content, eggs are also rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Moreover, there are also essential amino acids, vitamins, and other important minerals in an egg. Mama can make boiled eggs as a delicious and healthy snack during breastfeeding. It is recommended to choose DHA-fortified eggs to increase the levels of essential fats in breast milk.

Whole wheat bread contains folic acid, iron, and fiber that nursing mothers need. Besides being able to facilitate breast milk, wheat bread also facilitates bowel movements.
