Earlier generations were warned about toxicity of seafood, which is why it’s been left out of many meal plans. Tuna is a common childhood staple, and light tuna contains very little mercury. You can feed your child three servings of tuna a week without worrying about mercury. You needn’t worry about mercury in fish sticks, salmon and shellfish.

Listen as Dr. Aaron Bernstein joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss how to add more seafood into your child’s diet.
