The diet is suggested to the mother under these conditions differs slightly from that recommended generally: a Mediterranean diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables to ensure an adequate intake of nutrients. What is to be considered, however, is the increased energy demands of the mother, who must also take into account the energy used to produce milk (about 90 Kcal per 100 g of milk). On a day to get a new mother can also consume 800 kcal to produce milk. These calories need to be replenished adequately.
Simple sugars should be avoided as much as possible as they provide only a surplus of calories without benefits for the production of milk, contrary to the carbohydrate complex (bread, pasta, cereals ..) can be taken regularly. The protein affects only the quantity of milk produced, not the quality and, therefore, should slightly increase their consumption.

Even the fish that provide omega-3 is better during lactation.
