Hello Evi, thank you for asking.
Indeed breast milk content is sometimes influenced by ingredients contained in mother's food. For example if a mother takes a certain drug, then some types of drugs will be present in breast milk even with very low concentrations. However, not all material consumed by mothers will enter breast milk.
The packaged drinks that mothers consume contain high sugar. It also contains a variety of preservatives. In general, it is unlikely that the ingredients contained in the drink enter breast milk. But it is also possible that there are a small portion of preservatives that affect the quality of breast milk.
Another thing that needs attention is that the high sugar content in bottled drinks can have a negative impact on long-term maternal health. Excessive blood sugar levels that occur continuously can trigger diabetes.
Then it's better if the mother starts to reduce the consumption of packaged drinks. If you want to improve the quality of breast milk can be tried with the consumption of milk made from nuts, such as almonds, soybeans, cashews, or milk from grain materials such as oatmeal. Don't add too much sugar to the milk. Sugar consumption per day should not exceed 5-6 teaspoons.
Hope this helps with this answer. Regards.
