DHA (the acronym for docosahexaenoic acid) is a type of Omega-3 fat. DHA is found in a few specific foods and occurs naturally in breast milk, but the amount depends on the foods Mom eats. It is also contained in DHA-enriched infant formulas and toddler drinks.

Not all DHA formulas contain the same amount of DHA. Look on the list of ingredients for DHA, which will be listed by its full name, docosahexaenoic acid. Experts recommend† that infant formula contains between 0.2%-0.5% of total fatty acids (approximately 7.2 to 18 mg of DHA per 100 mL).
