Make sure your child eats fish
Fish contain many proteins, fatty acids and vitamins that are important for the health of children as they grow
In a recent study conducted at a research center in Germany, pediatricians recommended that parents provide more fish to their children because it contains important nutrients such as proteins, fatty acids (omega-3), vitamin D, and other beneficial elements. Doctors stressed the need for children to eat fish at least once a week, routinely and over long periods in order to obtain the desired benefit later and in the long term. According to the estimates of this German study, which focused on researching children’s nutrition sources, children between the ages of seven and nine years in particular should eat about 150 grams as a minimum of different types of fish per week. The following types of fish, namely salmon, herring, trout, anchovies, sardines, and mackerel that live in the Atlantic Ocean, are among the types of fish that are of great benefit to the child. On the other hand, the study warned against excessive provision of fish that may contain large amounts of lead to children, such as swordfish, white tuna, orange roughy, and marlin fish. The study showed that another health benefit of fish is that it is considered an important source of iodine, phosphorus, and calcium, all of which are beneficial for bone and dental health in general, and also help to strengthen memory. The fatty acids found in fish are beneficial in stimulating blood circulation in general and enhancing children’s growth resources to help them build the functions of the brain, brain, nerves and tissues.
