Eating healthy isn't always easy, and when your family is rushing around in the evenings it can seem like a daunting task to put a well-balanced, nutritious meal on the table.
However, cooking at home with a lean protein you can feel good about serving, like seafood, is one way to serve up quick, good-for-you meals. In fact, one-third of people surveyed reported they increased their fish consumption at home last year, according to Datassential.
Research published in the "Journal of the American Medical Association" showed eating seafood two to three times per week can improve brain, eye, heart and prenatal health. Seafood also provides unique health benefits as one of the best sources for omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats essential to human health and development.
As only one out of 10 Americans meets the dietary guidelines recommendation of two servings of seafood per week, National Seafood Month in September is a great time to incorporate more seafood into your family's meals. Check out these tips from the Seafood Nutrition Partnership:
