"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." - Hippocrates
This is very true especially for a lactating mother. A well balanced diet for the mother is an absolute necessity to meet the nutritional requirements of lactation. A wide variety of foods should be included in the diet of the mother. Apart from that, there are special preparations for the lactating mother known as ‘galactagogues’ which are known to stimulate the production of milk.
