Fish is too good a nutritional choice – especially during pregnancy.
Everyone of us knows how good is fish for our health, and an endless question in mind of young mothers – is it safe to eat fish during pregnancy? Mothers are usually scared and avoid fish because it contains different dose of mercury. Don’t worry, it can be perfectly safe – if you choose the right type of fish. Fish lower in mercury, such as salmon, tilapia, shrimp, tuna (canned-light), cod, and catfish is safe for consuming during pregnancy.
For pregnant women, eating fish every week may benefit the brain of their future child, and may even decrease his or her risk of having some of the early signs of autism. It is proven that the children whose mothers ate three to four servings of fish a week had IQ scores that were 2.8 percent higher than those whose mothers ate less fish. Children whose mothers ate an average of 21 ounces of fish every week (about three to four servings) during their pregnancy showed no signs that mercury in fish negatively affected their developmental health, compared with the children whose mothers ate less fish. Pregnant and breastfeeding women get 250 milligrams of EPA and/or DHA a day by eating 8 ounces of fish that are rich in omega-3s each week.
The benefits of eating fish mainly outweigh mercury risks.
So, dear pregnant women with wonder in your stomach, you have nothing to worry about – enjoy in pregnancy and eat wish!
