FOODS THAT HELP IN MILK PRODUCTION


There are some foods that can help in the production of milk such as oats (that can be eaten in bread and crackers) and barley (which is very good in soups), both of which can also be eaten as morning porridge. It is also helpful to drink enough liquid, to eat warm meals with grains such as millet or rice and with vegetables such as carrots, fennel or yams. It's also good to eat healthy fats such as organic butter, olive and flax oils, for Omega 3,[1] and herbs such as dill, basil or marjoram and spices such as caraway, anise and fennel.
