DHA & LUTEIN: NUTRIENTS VITAL TO EYE & BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
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
