HEALTHY KITCHEN

Should I eat seafood while I’m pregnant?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have issued advice regarding eating fish. This advice is geared toward helping women who are pregnant or may become pregnant - as well as breastfeeding mothers and parents of young children - make informed choices when it comes to fish that is healthy and safe to eat.

The advice includes a chart (below) that makes it easier than ever to choose dozens of healthy and safe options, and a set of frequently asked questions & answers.
