Seafood is an important part of a healthy diet and becoming the food of choice for the health-conscious. Some great reasons to eat seafood are shown in the nutrition information table opposite. It’s brain food, and lots more!
In Australia we don’t eat enough seafood. The Australian Dietary Guidelines and Heart Foundation advise eating one or two fish based meals per week (a serve of fish is 80 to 120g cooked weight). However according to the last National Dietary Survey only 1 in 4 of us reported eating fish at least once a week.
“The evidence is now largely unequivocal that some fish each week is an advantage to health and longevity”.
This notion is now supported by a great deal of scientific and medical research. A good starting point to understand this information is the FRDC publication Whats_so_healthy_booklet
