Answer: Diet and nutrition play an important role in improving and maintaining a healthy breastmilk supply. Try including these foods in your diet to increase milk supply. Fenugreek (methi) This is an ancient remedy and is being used since generations to improve breastmilk supply. Methi is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and is a good source of vitamins, iron, and calcium. Nuts and dried fruits It is well known that nuts and dried fruits are high on calories, rich in vitamins and minerals, and a good source of essential nutrients. They can be had by themselves or added in several preparations. Pulses and lentils Pulses, such as Tur daal and Masoor daal are believed to improve milk supply since ancient times. They are high in protein and contain good amounts of iron and fiber. Green leafy vegetables Spinach,sarson ka saag,bathua are a few of the many green leafy vegetables that are rich in iron, calcium, folate, vitamin A and B12 which help to improve lactation. During winters theses vegetables are easily available so make sure you are eating adequate quantity. Other remedies - Utilizing the demand and supply equation, The more you draw milk from your breast, the more milk your body will produce. If milk is not efficiently removed from the breasts, it eventually decreases milk supply. Supplements - 1) Shatavari kalp powder. This has known results when it comes to increasing milk supply. Take a spoon of powder with lukewarm milk once in a day. 2) Jeera- This is the most effective remedy. Roast jeera seeds then powder them and have 1spoon of this powder daily with lukewarm milk once a day. By following these soon you ll notice difference in your milk supply.

A balanced diet includes: Starchy foods, such as rice, bread, potato (aloo), wholewheat rotis, oats (jaee), semolina (suji) and pasta. Choose wholegrain or multi-grain varieties of cereal-based starchy foods for added nutrients and fibre. Some dairy produce, such as a glass of milk, curd (dahi). Some protein, such as lentils, pulses, eggs, fish and lean meat. Plenty of fruit and vegetables are good for feeding mother. For Iron take anaar, spinach, apple, banana, leafy veggie. include pulses, sprouts, dry fruits, If you are none vegetarian take lean red meat, fish and poultry. Eggs are also a good source of iron. Eat at least three daily servings of calcium-rich foods such as milk and other dairy products, fish, almonds, or calcium-fortified foods like cereals, juices, soy and rice beverages, and breads. For vitamin D sun helps your body produce vitamin D. Good sources are oily fish also. Vitamin C helps your body to absorb iron better. Citrus fruits, amla, amrood and papaya are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin A finds in Carrots , eggs, sweet potato (shakarkandi), dark leafy greens, pumpkin (kaddu), red capsicum (laal shimla mirch), peas (matar), tomato (tamatar) and mango (aam) are rich in vitamin A. You can also have a handful of nuts as a light snack. If you must eat the laddoos or panjiri you can reduce the calorie count by eating smaller portions.
