It’s nearly impossible to flip through a parenting magazine without seeing handfuls of ads about products that contain DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that occurs naturally in breast milk and is believed to support healthy brain development. DHA is used to fortify formula, infant cereals, yogurts and other forms of nutrition; it’s also available as a supplement for moms and babies. And, DHA is widely used for toddlers and older children whose brains, of course, are still growing and developing every day.
If you’re thinking of getting pregnant, or already have passed that home pregnancy test with flying colors, you’ll want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to grow a healthy baby. That means quitting smoking and drinking, exercising in moderation, eating a healthy diet—and taking a prenatal vitamin every day.
