Eat­ing nuts – in par­tic­u­lar cashews, al­monds and macadamia nuts – is a great way to give your milk sup­ply a boost. They’re high in good fats and an­tiox­i­dants. Apri­cots, es­pe­cially dried apri­cots, con­tain phy­toe­stro­gens that help to bal­ance the hor­mones in­volved in lac­ta­tion. Apri­cots are high in fi­bre, Vi­ta­min A, C, potas­sium and cal­cium. They also con­tain tryp­to­phan, which nat­u­rally boosts pro­lactin lev­els – that’s the hor­mone that stim­u­lates milk pro­duc­tion.
