As a baby develops, DHA helps support not only brain development, but the eyes and nervous system too.

DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid. The name DHA is shorthand for docosahexaenoic acid.

DHA is important for the healthy structure and function of the brain. As a baby develops, it helps support not only brain development, but the eyes and nervous system, too. Studies in infants have shown DHA helps support respiratory health and contributes to the development of a healthy immune system.

When deciding whether to give your child DHA, it's good to remember that, on average, toddlers only get about 25% of the expert-recommended amount of DHA in their daily diets.

Many experts recommend 70-100 mg/day of DHA. Find out how much DHA is in these common toddler foods.
