NUTRITIONIST AND AUTHOR ELIZABETH WARD TALKS ABOUT THE NEWLY RELEASED DIETARY GUIDELINES FOR AMERICANS
THE DIETARY GUIDELINES FOR AMERICANS HAVE BEEN RELEASED!
The United States Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services (HHS) new Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) have been released, encouraging all Americans to eat at least two to three seafood meals (or 8 to 12 ounces) each week because of its heart, brain, and weight benefits. The Guidelines also underscore the importance for pregnant and breastfeeding women to eat more seafood to boost babies’ brain and eye development. Since the average pregnant woman eats less than two ounces of seafood per week, this means a significant increase for most to reap the benefits.
Seafood is rich in nutrients most people don’t get enough of – omega 3’s and vitamin D, which improve brain development in babies, lower the risk of depression and heart disease among adults, and build healthy bones. For pregnant women in particular, seafood is a satisfying and affordable source of protein with benefits for both mom and baby.
Nationally-renowned nutrition consultant and author of such lauded books as MyPlate for Moms, How to Feed Yourself & Your Family Better: Decoding the Dietary Guidelines for Your Real Life; Expect the Best, Your Guide to Healthy Eating Before, During, & After Pregnancy; The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to the New Food Pyramids; and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Feeding Your Baby, Elizabeth Ward will discuss the new dietary guidelines for Americans and will explain all of the health benefits and importance of eating the weekly recommended amounts of seafood (for everyone, including pregnant and breastfeeding women) and what those recommended amounts are. Elizabeth will also clear up misconceptions about seafood and share the importance of talking with your doctor about seafood’s health benefits.
