Breast milk is a breastfed baby’s first form of nourishment, but in the grand scheme of things, even “extended” nurslings breastfed for only a small percentage of their lives.  It is important to teach our children proper nutrition and introduce them to a variety of different foods, so that they can make smart food choices throughout their lives.

It is equally important for breastfeeding mothers to properly nourish themselves, as breastfeeding does burn calories.  Breastfeeding mothers should not limit their diets, for spices do transfer to breast milk…the more variety in the mother’s diet, the more accepting their child’s palate will be when they begin to eat solids.

Although not directly related to breastfeeding, cooking and feeding my family healthy meals is very important to me.  So when Kelly at New Leaf Wellness (who happens to be my cousin & a young breastfeeding mother herself) asked me to be a contributing writer on her blog, I jumped at the chance.  Here are links to each of my recipes.  Enjoy!
