The Key to a Healthy Diet

The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend eating at least two servings of seafood per week, especially for pregnant women and those with heart conditions. Nutrients key to a healthy pregnancy such as omega-3s and other proteins support an infant's brain, skeletal, and immune and cardiovascular systems development.

Fish and shellfish are major sources of healthy omega-3 fats and are rich in proteins in nutrients, such as vitamin D and selenium.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) recommends pregnant women eat up to 12 ounces of seafood per week to improve cognitive and visual development in infants.

Research shows that people who regularly consume fish live an average of 2.2 years longer than those who don't eat fish.
