Now is an important time for DHA, a type of Omega 3 fat and important building block of the brain. But did you know that DHA may be missing from your toddler’s diet? A number of foods are actually very low in the important fat, which is why many toddlers are not getting the expert recommended daily intake of 100mg* of DHA per day.
