This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

DHA, AA ADDITION TO FULL-TERM INFANT FORMULA OPPOSED BY HEALTH CANADA, the Canadian Pediatric Society and the Dietitians of Canada in guidelines for health professionals on nutrition for healthy term infants released April 27. "Although it is reasonable to presume that infants not fed breast milk might benefit from dietary sources of [arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid], until the safety and efficacy of the sources of these fatty acids and of the formulas supplemented with them have been established, the routine addition of these nutrients to formulas designed for full-term infants is not recommended," the guidelines conclude.
