Maternal Diet Rich In Omega-3 Shown To Be Linked To Higher IQ Scores In Children

The benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids were highlighted in a Norwegian study that demonstrates the positive effect a maternal diet rich in Omega Oil can have on a child’s problem-solving abilities. The research findings suggest that a mother’s intake of an Omega-3 fatty acid in pregnancy has a positive association with an infant’s problem-solving skills at 12 months. The study found that children who had the most Omega-3 at 3,6 and 12 months old had higher problem-solving scores. Higher problem solving scores in infancy are related to higher childhood IQ scores, emphasising the importance and impact of Omega-3 fatty acids during the last trimester of pregnancy. The European Food Standard Agency recommends pregnant women to take 100-200mg of Omega-3 fatty acid per day in addition to general adult requirements.
