However, in the modern days almost every mother starts worrying while lactating their babies with a weird questions arise in their mind… am I lactating sufficiently? Is my baby getting sufficient milk to fill his/her tummy?
It’s really heartbreaking when some mothers have lactation deficiency, i.e. inadequate breast milk production resulting to an inability to breastfeed their babies properly.
So, for those moms today I am sharing some food that can boost your Lactation.
- MORINGA LEAVES (DRUMSTICK LEAVES)
The Moringa leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant, being significant source of Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, manganese and protein.
It improves the immunity of the body to fight against malnutrition especially among nursing mother and infants.
These Moringa leaves are used in curry, dal, and toppings on dosas, uthappas and sabjis mixed with grated coconuts.
Using garlic cloves in your daily food helps to increase milk production. When we eat garlic it gets mixed with your breast milk and it changes the taste and smell of the milk. Sometimes some babies don’t like the taste of it, please don’t avoid it, and try to include it in your diet because it’s one of the best sources of food that increases your lactation.
- PAAL SRAVU (MULLET FISH) (WHITE SHARK FISH)
If you are a nonveg lover and you like fish the most, then paal sravu is the best for increasing breast milk. If you can’t find the fresh ones, you can consume the dried fish which are easily available in the fish market.

Dal especially Moong daal is easily digestible and improves lactation. The presence of Thiamine in dal is very healthy for nursing mother.
