A new study has been done on lactating women and the effects of certain foods to their milk. The study of five thousand women showed a clear indication that the consumption of strawberries will make breast milk strawberry flavoured. This has spurred research in to other foods being tested and the Institute for Breastfeeding Research is pushing forward with new studies in the coming months.
The research started with the effect on rats and it was noted that the milk effectively became strawberry milk with the consumption of a strawberry rich diet. The next food to be tested is expected to be broccoli in an attempt to push the consumption of the vegetable in younger infants due to its high iron content and vast array of different vitamins. 23% of the participants of the study showed no difference in their milk content but a staggering 77% of participants produced strawberry milk.
