MOH: Health Tips for Breastfeeding Women during Ramadan
02 May 2019

​The Ministry of Health (MOH) has provided a number of health tips for breastfeeding women to follow during the blessed month of Ramadan.

In an infographic published on its twitter page within its awareness campaign: «Healthy Fasting», MOH has highlighted the importance of adequate fluid intake from sunset until dawn, in addition to eating the carbohydrate-rich foods to supply the body with energy, given that high-carb foods include rice, pasta, wheat, beans, and legumes. MOH also underlined the need to increase the fresh vegetables intake to supply the body with vitamins and minerals, as well as eating calcium-rich foods such as dairy products and eggs, because they are the principal component of breastmilk.

It is worth mentioning that such awareness-raising activities come in continuation of MOH's efforts to maintain the health and safety of fasting persons, to promote health awareness, and to urge them to adopt healthy behaviors.
