         After 9 months of pregnancy, after giving birth, the mother will experience problems regarding increased weight. Whether it is weight gain from the pregnancy or excess eating, every new mother wishes to regain their pre-pregnancy body and look healthy. Other than slimming down with exercise,  diet is also an important part of weight control. However, for postpartum mothers,  it is important to take into account the nutritional benefits as well. Therefore,  "Clean food" is considered a healthy and interesting alternative.

What is clean food?

"Clean Food" is food that emphasizes health benefits that nutritionists agree are good for the health according to nutritional principles. Clean food uses less seasoning and resembles nature, is nutritious and hygienic

Clean eating is not limiting the amount of food intake, but choosing to eat healthy food that is fresh, clean, and unprocessed, without the use of chemical additives or fermentation. This includes ready-made meals, which contains preservatives. It also includes fast food, which has high amounts of sodium and fat. Mostly, clean food will not have spicy taste, but it is not completely tasteless and bland. Mothers can still enjoy eating. 

Even though controlling weight is a main issue, postpartum mothers still have an important duty: breast feeding. Constantly eating the same clean menus may not give the mother enough nutrients to produce breastmilk.  The body needs to extract the nutrients that are missing from consumption through the body’s stored nutrients in order to produce nutritious breastmilk. If the mother is constantly malnourished, this stored nutrient reserve will be depleted and the quality of the breastmilk will drop, which affects the baby negatively. Therefore, the mother's clean diet after giving birth should have all the nutrients necessary to produce high quality breastmilk. Therefore, this topic requires a lot of attention because it affects both the mother and baby.
