Diet of Lactating Mothers

My Mommy, Mama and my OB-Gyne told me that eating foods with “sabaw” and malunggay can increase my milk supply! I can say that it can really help (based on experience). I read some blogs that production of breast milk will also depend on your diet.

Last month, when we visited our pediatrician, he gave me a pamphlet about Food Guide Pyramid for Filipino Infants, Children and Adolescents. A portion there that states “Diet of Lactation Mothers”. I would like to share this note with you.

Based on the 2008 Dietary Prescription Food Guide Pyramid Second Edition by PSPGN (Philippine Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition)


I was shocked when I saw the volume of rice we should consume per day !!! Shocking isn’t it when I’m only eating 2 cups per day !!!!
