(HealthDay News) -- Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly essential during pregnancy, as they foster healthy brain and vision development in a growing fetus.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:
  • Eat 12 ounces of omega-3-rich fish each week.
  • Choose low-mercury seafood. Good choices include anchovies, bass, halibut, herring, blue mussels, Pacific oysters, trout, salmon, tuna and whitefish.
  • Avoid tilefish, shark, swordfish and king mackerel, which are higher in mercury.
  • Eat foods fortified with DHA.
