Anchovy in pregnancy

Is it safe to eat Anchovy during pregnancy? Yes.


Seafood, which includes fish and shellfish, can be a great source of protein, iron and zinc — crucial nutrients for your baby's growth and development. The omega-3 fatty acids in many fish, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), also can promote your baby's brain development.

Anchovies considered safe to eat in pregnancy - since it's low in mercury and high in omega-3 fatty acids. Just keep in mind the weekly amount of anchovy that you eat. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that pregnant women eat at least 8 ounces and up to 12 ounces (340 grams) of a variety of seafood lower in mercury a week. That's about two to three servings.
