Protein Bars and Breastfeeding

Hi, ladies! I'm curious if protein bars alone for a meal supply enough nutrition for breastfeeding. My hubs and I are on Weight Watchers, and sometimes for lunch (not everyday) I'd like to have a protein bar with say some fruit and veggies. Its alot quicker for me since lunch generally falls during my 6mo's nap, and ya never know when a baby will wake up! I know I could meal prep, and I have. I'm just asking if it'd be alright on occasion!

    When I was breastfeeding there were days I only had a high protein yogurt for lunch. Should be okay, just make sure you snack too! Those days I had a little extra of a snack (nuts, cheese and hard boiled egg or something) And it may effect your supply so just be careful.

    Do whatever you gotta do. You'll be fine if it's temporary. There were days I survived on pretzels and ice cream 🤣 (not kidding)

    As long as you don’t physically feel hungry and your fairly balanced with your diet your body should be able to produce just fine 👌

    You can always supplement with fenugreek or brewers yeast to help keep your supply up if your calories are consistently too low.
