Women have special nutritional needs during breastfeeding. The MyPlate for Breastfeeding Moms Handout Tablet is a dietary guide based on USDA MyPlate recommendations to help women who are breastfeeding eat a healthy, balanced diet that supports the baby's needs and helps mom return to her pre-pregnancy weight. The plan shows amounts of food needed from each food group based on whether the mother is breastfeeding only or breastfeeding and giving formula. MyPlate is the USDA food symbol that replaced the food guide pyramid.

The backside of the handout addresses the importance of hydration and fluid requirements, weight loss while breastfeeding, food safety, and the benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and baby.
