The composition of breastmilk is partially related to the mother’s diet. If protein and carbohydrate composition of human milk, lipids minerals, vitamins and trace elements are highly depending of lactating mother’s feeding of question of an ideal diet suitable for breast feeding women arises, and also the necessity or not of a supplementation. We know that the energy requirements are unique to each mother (with a lower limit not to cross) and the distribution of macronutrients (lipids, proteins and carbohydrates) is identical to what is recommended for the population of non-breastfeeding women, ensuring an adequate and balanced contribution in various essential fatty acids. By giving priority to foods, which is nutritionally interesting and adopting a balanced diet, breastfeeding women can cover their nutritional.
