Royal baby: Kate Middleton should follow this diet after giving birth to Prince
Kate Middleton gave birth to a royal baby boy yesterday, as Prince William and the UK celebrated the news of another Prince. The Duchess of Cambridge should follow this diet to boost her energy and strength if she is breastfeeding her latest son.
It’s important to eat a healthy, balanced diet while you’re breastfeeding, according to the NHS.
You should eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, while having no more than one 150ml glass of 100 per cent unsweetened fruit juice.
The NHS recommends new mothers eat healthy snacks throughout the day to give them energy boosts.
Vegetable soup, ready-to-eat apricots, yoghurts, and hummus with vegetable sticks are a great choice for breastfeeding mothers.
Make sure you also eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the day, too.

But, you shouldn’t eat more than two portions of oily fish a week – the equivalent to about 280g.
New mothers should also consider restricting their caffeine intake, as it can reach the baby through breast milk.
“Breastfeeding has long-term benefits for your baby, lasting right into adulthood,” said the NHS.
“Small amounts of what you’re eating and drinking can pass to your baby through your breast milk.
“If you think a food you’re eating is affecting your baby and they’re unsettled, talk to your GP or health visitor, or contact the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212.”
More than 73 per cent of mothers breastfeed their babies in the UK, according to the NHS.
Breast milk is “perfectly designed” for your baby, it added.
It protects the child from infections and sieges, while also providing health benefits for the mother.
Breastfeeding also lowers the baby’s risk of diarrhoea, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
You should give your baby nothing but breast milk for the first six months of your baby’s life, said the NHS.
