Breastfeeding Menu

(I needed a picture and I found the neighborhood rabbit Bob!)

Here is another menu for you breastfeeders!


Bean and Cheese burrito with a whole wheat tortilla
(3 tbsp beans and a good handful of cheese)

1 cup of cold 1% milk

1 piece of fruit or half a grapefruit


3 cups of popcorn with blackpepper (YUM)
1 cup of low fat yogurt


Ham sandwich on wheat bread
(4 slices ham with any toppings)
1 cup of salad
(1 teaspoon dressing)
2 cups of watermelon
1 cup of juice or iced/hot decaf tea (no green tea)


1 hard cooked egg
1 banana with peanutbutter


Palm sized portion of salmon
(baked with salt, pepper, paprika, and lemon juice)
1 cup of brown/white rice
1 1/2 cup mixed veggies
(or your favorite veggies)
Bread with light butter


1 cup of yogurt with added fruit
chocolate cake
(any kind its dessert you deserve a treat)

That is my plan for one day of meals for breastfeeding.

We need this daily:
3 cups of dairy
6oz of meat/beans
8 oz grains
2 cups of fruit
3 cups veggies
6 teaspoons of oil (butter, olive oil, mayo, etc.)

So while I will be posting menu's with the daily requirements above you can make your own menu's as well.

Remember 13 8oz cups of water at the minimum.

You deserve a treat AFTER dinner.

You can always eat more fruit, vegetable, or dairy when hungry.




  1. Dang so much I need to do. Just realized I really need to eat more meat!

  2. This post made me hungry for salmon!! Haha it's my favorite and now it looks like we'll be having it for dinner soon! :)
