Smart Eating: Eat Seafood at Least Twice a Week

Choose seafood at least twice a week as your main source of protein.

Seafood choices include:
  • Salmon 
  • Haddock 
  • Tuna 
  • Shrimp 
  • Clams 
  • Lobster 
  • Anchovies 
Seafood provides important nutrients, including omega-3 fats that are good for your health, especially for expectant moms.

The advice to eat seafood often does not apply to vegetarians. For vegetarians, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) recommends protein sources such as beans, peas and processed soy products.
