DHA & LUTEIN: NUTRIENTS VITAL TO EYE & BRAIN DEVELOPMENT

Publish Date: 20 September 2019

Abstract:

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and lutein form a power team of nutrients that encourage healthy eye and brain development, especially for infants and children. Unfortunately, many young children don't eat enough DHA & lutein-enriched foods to support brain and eye health.


With this infographic, you’ll learn how to:

  • Describe the importance of DHA and lutein in infancy and early childhood
  • Discuss what happens when children have a deficiency in either nutrient
  • Offer a list of DHA and lutein-rich foods
  • Consider the role of nutritional supplementation to help prevent or treat impairments brought about by DHA and lutein deficiencies
