August is National Breastfeeding Month. According to Women’s Health,

Research suggests that breastfed babies have lower risks of:

  • Asthma

  • Childhood leukemia

  • Childhood obesity

  • Ear infections

  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis)

  • Diarrhea and vomiting

  • Lower respiratory infections

  • Necrotizing (nek-roh-TEYE-zing) enterocolitis (en-TUR-oh-coh-lyt-iss), a disease that affects the gastrointestinal tract in pre-term infants

  • Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

  • Type 2 diabetes

But that’s not all, breastfeeding also improves health of the mother, it lowers the risk of Type 2 diabetes, certain types of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Mothers can increase the health benefits by focusing on a healthy diet as they breastfeed. USDA MyPlate has created a recipe designed especially to help mother keep healthy and they make it easy because new mothers know, there’s plenty to do and keeping it simple helps.

The plan shows amounts of food needed from each food group based on whether the mother is breastfeeding only or breastfeeding and giving formula. The backside of the handout addresses the importance of hydration and fluid requirements, weight loss while breastfeeding, food safety, and the benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and baby. 8 1/2″ x 11″, 50 sheets, 2-sided
