Firstly let's look at fats. We consume three types of fats within our diets: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated.
Polyunsaturated fats are considered to be good fats, and indeed are classed as "essential fatty acids" (PUFAs). The key PUFAs are Omega-3 and Omega-6 (the ‘omega’ and the ‘3’ or ‘6’ relate to their chemical structures).
Omega-3 is important for the development of Baby’s brain and eyes, especially during the latter stages of pregnancy. It is vitally important that Mums to be get enough omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Our Omega‑3 offers an alternative to fish for Omega‑3
Fish is the main source of Omega-3 in our diet and indeed most Omega-3 supplements are fish oils. This is because Fish contains omega-3 in the forms of EPA & DHA, which are the forms required by the body. Experts recommend pregnant and breast feeding women limit their oily fish intake to 2 portions per week, due to the possible presence of possibly harmful contaminants including mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) or even dioxins.
