There is plenty of research showing certain foods can help increase your breast milk supply. There’s even a recipe out there for lactation cookies. I know – because I made them after my first son was born when I was sure he was fussy because I couldn’t make him enough milk (WRONG!). Most often babies just go through fussy phases – like we all do, adjusting to life outside an all-inclusive resort. While I never had trouble with milk supply, some women do, and certainly a salad is more appropriate postpartum nutrition than a batch of cookies (don’t shoot the messenger).
This salad recipe includes a few foods known to boost your supply without the guilt of a cookie.
Nuts, fennel, greens, and fenugreek will all help your baby get the leg rolls mine both had (or have). If you aren’t looking for the same leg rolls – feel free to eat it any time you’re lactating or not!
