Fish intakes in younger Australian women
There is good evidence that long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCn3PUFA) are beneficial for maternal and infant health. Fish is a good source of LCn3PUFA and other nutrients but its consumption within Australian women is overall less than optimal based on data from the last national nutrition survey conducted in 1995. This project will provide more updated information on fish consumption in younger Australian women by examining the dietary questionnaire data collected in the 2003 and 2009 ALSWH surveys.
