I would say that one of the hardest things after having a baby is not feeding the baby - it's feeding yourself! At least, if you want to do it the healthy way, with home-cooked meals, fresh ingredients and variety.
Sure, you can stock your freezer full of pizza rolls and TV dinners - there's no shame in that and you WILL be able to breastfeed - healthy diet or not. But as a dietitian, lactation counselor and postpartum fitness specialist, I'm excited to see more and more people turning towards a healthier lifestyle and better diet - especially while breastfeeding!
