The child needs postnatal care from the mother but after childbirth, the health of the mother is not so good so, the mother can not provide the right postnatal care that is needed by the child. Therefore, the mother must remain healthy so that she can provide all the care that the child needs. For recovering mothers, it is important to provide them with postnatal confinement food. These foods contain the right proportions of food components that are needed for the fast recovery of the mother.

What do these confinement foods contain
