DHA is important for children to consume as it supports brain health. Dr. David Perlmutter, M.D., Board-Certified Neurologist, Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and author of “Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten,” says DHA supports normal cognitive function.
Recently published research suggests for children (ages 7-9) underperforming in reading, a healthy diet including 600 mg of DHA daily may support improvements in reading and behavior.
Dr. Perlmutter recently spoke about the relationship between DHA and children’s brain health on the Mom To Be Depot, an online resource for new moms. You can listen to the interview online.
