Seafood

Did you know that a small can of sardines offers nearly 35 percent of the daily recommended intake of calcium? Canned salmon is up there, too. Because you can eat the tiny bones in this canned variety of fish, they offer up a good amount of this important nutrient. But seafood, in general, is great for a postpartum mom – good news for those who were desperately missing their sushi during pregnancy. Seafood is, of course, also a good source of protein so if you’re a pescetarian who doesn’t touch the meats listed earlier, you can turn to fish and get what you need. It’s also high in omegas, which a baby needs for healthy development.
