Dietary Tips for Boosting Male Fertility

Diet can affect a man's sperm, so if you're trying to have a baby, make healthy choices when you eat!

Fruits and Vegetables: Eat plenty of leafy greens, purple and yellow vegetables, apples, oranges, kiwi, blueberries and melon.

Whole Grains: Easy ways to get enough whole grains include a bowl of oatmeal at breakfast, whole-grain bread at lunch and brown rice with dinner.

Low-Fat Dairy: Dairy products are high in important nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D, potassium and protein. Good low-fat dairy choices include 1 cup of milk or yogurt or 1 ounce of cheese each day.

Protein: Some healthy sources of protein are: fish, turkey, chicken breast, beans, nuts, seeds and tofu.

Fats: Limit foods high in saturated fats, such as red meat, full-fat dairy products and fried foods. Instead, consume healthy fats, such as an ounce of walnuts or almonds, extra-virgin olive oil or avocado.
