Fish and eggs give the moms the DHA they need for their babies
Moms who can’t eat fish and eggs need DHA supplements when they’re pregnant-
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.
Fish and eggs can provide pregnant moms with the DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) their babies need to build their brains and eyesight, according to Dr. Susan Carlson, the AJ Rice Professor of Nutrition at the University of Kansas Medical Center, who was instrumental in the establishment of best-practice guidelines for the intake of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for infants and pregnant women. She 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 a series of videos for Nutrition4Kids, she answers parents' questions about DHA and why it's so important during that time. Others discuss why DHA is so important, DHA in breastmilk and for infants and toddlers.
