When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Eat it so you can…
  • Build your baby’s cells;
  • Renew your own cells.
How much is enough?

You need about 60 g/day of protein.

Try eating 100-150 g of meat or fish or two eggs every day, plus three to four portions of dairy products (e.g. a glass of milk, tub of yoghurt, portion of cheese).

On your plate

Good sources of protein include:

  • Meat;
  • Fish;
  • Eggs;
  • Milk and dairy products;
  • Legumes (e.g. soybeans, lentils, beans);
  • Nuts and seeds.
  • Alternate your animal proteins: have fish one day, meat the next and eggs the day after that. Variety is the key to getting what you and your baby needs.
  • Consume vegetable proteins daily.
  • If your meal doesn’t include meat, have rice and lentils, or couscous and chickpeas.
  • If you are a vegetarian, make sure you consume enough eggs and dairy products.
  • Vegans may find it harder to meet their protein needs. Consult a dietitian or doctor for specific dietary advice.
