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.
The foods you eat serve many purposes.
A vegetarian mother can continue with her vegetarian diet and still give her baby enough nutrition.
Your body needs energy and calories to help you recover and grow after pregnancy.
Eat a healthy snack after each breastfeeding session!
