I hope you are doing well. Yes, the kind of diet you take would indirectly affect your feed and the health of your child. If you are consuming a healthy meal then, you are bound to express enough milk and good milk flow. However, it won't affect the composition of the milk as the mother's feed has a thin consistency so that your child can digest it well :)
