Mothers of New Babies and Toddlers


Nutrition plays a major role in your recovery after pregnancy and childbirth. If you decide to restrict the calories you consume during this time, you are not making a wise decision. This is true whether you have a regular diet, a vegetarian diet, or are a teen mom.

Proper Nutrition:

The foods you eat serve many purposes.


A vegetarian mother can continue with her vegetarian diet and still give her baby enough        nutrition.

Teenage mothers:

Your body needs energy and calories to help you recover and grow after pregnancy.


Eat a healthy snack after each breastfeeding session!

Food and Fluid Guide:
Make sure to drink enough fluids and to choose healthy foods more often.
