(HealthDay News) — Omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fatty fish, are an essential part of a healthy diet during pregnancy.

Opt for these safer sources, recommends the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:

  • Choose fish that are low in mercury, such as salmon, catfish, cod and sardines.
  • Avoid fish that are high in mercury, such as swordfish and shark.
  • Eat foods fortified with DHA, or if your doctor approves, take a DHA supplement.
  • Eat eggs from hens fed DHA-rich microalgae.
