Daily Food Plan for Moms
A Daily Food Plan for Moms shows the foods and amounts that are right for you at your stage of pregnancy or when breastfeeding. Get your Daily Food Plan by creating a profile using SuperTracker.
Your plan will be personalized, based on your age, height, weight, physical activity level, and stage of pregnancy or breastfeeding status (pregnancy and breastfeeding options display upon providing your gender and age). You will have the option to register to save your profile if you want.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that mothers breastfeed for the first year and afterwards for as long as both mother and baby want to continue. The Daily Food Plan for Moms covers nutritional needs for breastfeeding women from the baby's birth up to 1 year. Nutritional needs for mothers who breastfeed more than 1 year will depend on the amount of breast milk produced plus the mother's own needs.
If you continue breastfeeding for more than a year, you may want to consult with your healthcare provider. Ask if your personalized Daily Food Plan for Moms from 6 months to 1 year of the baby's age is still right for you.
If you do not have a Daily Food Plan for Moms yet and your baby is over 1 year old, enter any date within the past year as the birth date, to get a Plan. It will show recommendations for you when your baby was 6 months to 1 year of age. Ask your healthcare provider about following this Plan when continuing to breastfeed a baby over 1 year old.
