Quick Summary

This systematic review reported that maternal dietary intake may have an effect on the composition of breast milk, particularly its fat content. However, no strong conclusions can be drawn due to the mixed quality of the studies included.

What was studied?

Whether a relationship exists between maternal dietary intake and milk composition.

Specifically, the nutritional values analyzed included the content of protein, total fat, saturated fatty acids (SFAs), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFAs),such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and trans fatty acids (TFAs), as well as total carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoid and flavonoids.
