The benefits of omega-3s for infants

A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition highlights the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, for infants. Researchers found higher intakes of DHA during pregnancy were associated with longer gestation duration and birth size. DHA omega-3 is considered one of most important nutrients for babies, along with folic acid and calcium with vitamin D, because it is important for brain and eye development. Talk with your healthcare provider about prenatal supplements with DHA, like Enfamil Expecta Prenatal Supplement.
