DHA during pregnancy improves your baby's brain and eyes
Kids’ IQs are better at 9 years old if their moms got good amounts of DHA during pregnancy-
Dr. Susan Carlson is the AJ Rice Professor of Nutrition and associate dean for research in the School of Health Professions at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a major factor in developing a baby's brains and eyes—starting during a mom's pregnancy. Dr. Susan Carlson, who was involved in the guidelines for DHA in infants and pregnant women, recently spoke about DHA's role in a baby's life for the webinar series: Nutrition in the First 1,000 Days, which extends from the time of conception until a toddler turns two. In this first of a series of videos for Nutrition4Kids, she answers parents' questions about DHA and why it's so important during pregnancy. Others discuss the best sources for DHA, DHA in breastmilk and for infants and toddlers.
