What is the daily recommended intake of DHA and EPA?
The WHO (World Health Organization) and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) recommend children consume the following DHA and EPA amounts daily:
Recommended Daily Amount
|6-24 months||DHA: 10-12 mg/kg body weight|
|2-4 years||DHA + EPA: 100-150mg|
|4-6 years||DHA + EPA: 150-200mg|
|6-10 years||DHA + EPA: 200-250mg|
|>10 years||DHA + EPA: 250-2000mg|
However – it’s really tricky to get the complete daily amount into your child’s diet from food alone, for example, your child would need to drink up to 8glasses of kids’ milk** to get one day’s daily amount!
