Breast milk provides abundant and easily absorbed nutritional components, antioxidants, enzymes, immune properties, and live antibodies from mother. Mother’s more mature immune system makes antibodies to the germs to which she and her baby have been exposed. These antibodies enter her milk to help protect her baby from illness. Immunoglobulin A coats the lining of the baby’s immature intestines helping, germs and allergens from leaking through. Breast milk also contains substances that naturally soothe infants.

Oily fish such as chunk-light tuna, sardines, halibut and salmon are the best sources of healthy omega-3’s. But sardines aren’t practical for feeding to a baby, and halibut and tuna are higher in mercury. That makes salmon the best source of DHA (again, the star omega-3 fatty acid) and, in my opinion, the healthiest fish for kids and adults alike. But almost all seafood contains omega-3’s, so try giving your baby a variety of low-mercury fish. Pollock is used in most commercial fish sticks and is another good choice.
