Majority of pregnant women consume insufficient amount of omega-3

Majority of pregnant women consume insufficient amount of omega-3March 27 2015. A study described in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism on March 25, 2015 suggests a lack of sufficient intake of omega-3 fatty acids among most pregnant and lactating women. However, the researchers involved in the study stress that women who supplemented with the fatty acids met the European Union (EU) recommended intake.

A team from the University of Alberta analyzed dietary questionnaire responses that were completed at each pregnancy trimester and three months following delivery by 600 participants in the Alberta Pregnancy Outcomes and Nutrition cohort. They found that just 27% of pregnant women and 25% of those who were postpartum met the EU daily recommendation of 200 milligrams docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is needed for fetal development. (The American and Canadian recommendation is higher.)
