Good Fats for Breastfeeding

When it comes to fat, think “healthy fats” including canola oil, olive oil, and fatty fish (like salmon) as well as avocados, olives, nuts, and seeds.

Limit saturated fats and avoid trans fats, both of which are considered unhealthy.

Saturated fats show up in high-fat meats, whole milk, tropical oils (such as palm kernel and coconut), butter, and lard.

Partially hydrogenated oils contain trans fats. Saturated fats and trans fats are both listed on a product’s nutrition label.

In addition to being bad for your diet, getting too much of these unhealthy fats can alter the fat composition of your breast milk, which isn’t good for your baby’s health.
