WHY DO WE RECOMMEND MOTHERS TO CHOOSE OUR WALNUT STUFFED RED DATES?

RED DATE 

Your body needs carbohydrates for energy. Breast Milk production requires approximately an extra 500 calories more than your usual energy needed to enable you to produce enough breast milk for your baby.

When consumed in moderation, red dates can contribute essential nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and manganese which are good for your normal body functioning. It is also high in polyphenols which are antioxidant compounds that could protect your body from inflammation. 

Besides, red dates are high in fibre. Around ¼ of a cup of the red dates can give you around 12% of your daily fibre requirement which helps you feel fuller longer. It also helps in combating constipation, this is especially essential for mothers who have undergone surgery/ C-section, to reduce the pain in the wounded area when you are straining in the toilet!

 

WALNUT

It is recommended that the pregnant and nursing woman should take at least 2.6g of omega-3 fatty acids and 100–300 mg of DHA from foods such as fatty fish like salmon and healthy nuts including walnuts to look after the needs of your growing fetus and suckling infant. 

The omega-3 fatty acids which are transferred to your breast milk from your food intake could help your baby in his/her brain functioning, psychomotor development as well as eye-hand coordination. 

When taken in moderation, walnuts can also provide a wide range of nutrients for your general health. One of them is ellagic acid which is an antioxidant found in high amounts in walnuts which is beneficial for your heart health.
