HEALTH GOODIES FOR LITTLE SEAFOODIES
When kids eat at least two servings of seafood each week, the benefits are big. Fish and shellfish supply the nutrients, vitamins and omega-3s essential for strong bones, brain development, and a healthy heart and immune system.
- Big Yums + Big Brains
Fish makes your brain bigger, literally! Your brain is nearly 60% fat, and omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s ability to perform.
- New Faves + Better Grades
Kids who eat fish at least once per week may do better in school. Seafood’s omega-3s help kids’ brains develop, leading to higher IQs and improved reading and spelling skills. Plus, children who consume more seafood have less anxiety and better focus.
- Clean Plates + Healthy Eyes
Nearly half of our eyes’ light-detecting cell structure is made up of omega-3s.
Sustainable seafood is a win-win:
healthy for your kids, healthy for the planet.
