DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that supports the healthy growth and development of your child’s brain, eyes, and nervous system. It serves as an important building block and is commonly introduced during periods of rapid growth, such as during pregnancy and childhood.
Where do I get DHA?
DHA is naturally found in certain foods, like oily or fatty fish.
We know how important fish is as part of a healthy lifestyle, providing key nutrients and essential fatty acids that our bodies have limited ability to make on their own.
Few foods are naturally high in DHA and some have omega-3s added to them, known as fortified foods. You can find DHA in fish like sardines and anchovies, and in enriched foods like eggs.
How much DHA do I need?
The answer depends on several factors, including your age, weight, and diet.
To get enough DHA from food alone can be difficult. Research show children on average are not meeting the recommended intake for seafood. This suggests many of us could be missing key nutrients that play an important role in our overall health.
