All green leafy vegetables are essential for new moms, but the spinach is the most important one among them. It is rich in vitamin A. With its folic acid content, it helps with the replacement of the blood that you lose during delivery. It also promotes breast milk production.
The manganese in the spinach plays an important role in the development of bones, cartilage and collagen. It also contains calcium, vitamin C and iron.
As you can consume the spinach raw, you can also consume it as soup or cooked meal.
