SHOULD I EAT MORE SEAFOOD?
TWICE A WEEK TO STAY AT YOUR PEAK...
Most people feel good about seafood – they agree that it’s good for their health, it’s a perfect choice when they want something special, or they love how it tastes. Despite this, only one in 10 Americans meet the Dietary Guidelines recommendation of having seafood 2 times per week.
Seafood provides unique health benefits as a lean protein and is the best source for omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats essential to human health and development.
EAT SEAFOOD 2x per week
OMEGA 3'S PLEASE
Americans need to incorporate more seafood and omega-3s into their diets for improved health.
Seafood sits among the highest-quality proteins and offers additional health benefits. It can reduce your risk of heart disease, help your child develop a healthy brain and eyes, and improve memory and sharpness in adults.
Thats why our partners at Seafood Nutrition Partnership are working to inspire Americans to enjoy fish and shellfish at least twice per week.
DELICIOUS + NUTRITIOUS
GOOD FOR THE PLANET, GOOD FOR YOU...
Eating seafood and the health of the environment are inextricably linked. Responsible aquaculture produces seafood in a way that does not have negative ecological effects. That means that we can have healthy food that is good for us and for the planet.
RESEARCH SHOWS THAT EATING SEAFOOD TWO TO THREE TIMES PER WEEK REDUCES THE RISK OF DEATH FROM ANY
HEALTH RELATED CAUSE.
Top reasons why eating more seafood makes for a healthier lifestyle:
Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States; however, eating seafood regularly can save lives and significantly improve heart health. Seafood is high in healthy fats, known as omega-3s, which are essential for heart health.
When kids eat at least two servings of seafood each week, the benefits are big. Fish and shellfish supply the nutrients essential for strong bones, brain development, and healthy immune and cardiovascular systems.
A third of the brain’s key functional units are made up of omega-3 fatty acids. A UCLA study shows that people who eat fish frequently have 14 percent larger brain hippocampus -- the big memory and learning center.
