Eating Tuna and Seafood While Pregnant

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

There are many myths about eating tuna and seafood during pregnancy. For first time mothers, it is but normal to listen to people who have experienced pregnancy. It is true that pregnant women should stay away from fish high in mercury (shark, mackerel, swordfish, tilefish). On the other hand, pregnant women should not stop eating seafood entirely for the whole nine months. It is actually SMART to eat seafood during pregnancy.

A scientific study was just released in which the findings show that women who skip seafood during pregnancy could be putting themselves in danger for depression. Researchers conclude that limiting the seafood consumption during pregnancy could be detrimental to optimal fetal development. It is actually found out that, mothers who eat the most seafood during pregnancy — more than 12 ounces per week — have children with the highest developmental outcomes. It was also found out that, women with the highest fish intake (2 ounces per day on average) had children 25% more likely to have higher developmental scores at 6 months and almost 30% more likely to have higher scores at 18 months. Therefore, eating healthy tuna is good for the health of the little one.

I know that tuna is healthy that is why when I was pregnant I never stopped eating one of my favorite tuna sandwich. Here's my very easy and simple recipe:

1 small can tuna in chunks (drain)
pickle relish
boiled egg (diced)
onion (diced)


Mix altogether. Spread in a whole wheat bread.
