- Vegetables (cooked) Requirements 11/2 cup
- Fruits (eg. papaya) Requirements 1 serving During breast feeding, your baby will essentially be taking in whatever substances you take in. Think carefully about your intake of nicotine, sugar and artificial sweetener. Think carefully about your alcohol and caffeine (found in chocolate and many teas and soft drinks as well as in coffee) intake. They pass quickly into the breast milk and affect the baby in the same way they affect you.
