It is composed of a complex mixture of nutrients, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and immune factors. Breast milk provides numerous health benefits for infants, including reducing the risk of infections, allergies, and chronic diseases. The composition of breast milk can vary depending on the mother's diet and overall health. It is important for mothers to receive support and education on breastfeeding to ensure successful breastfeeding outcomes.
