If someone is eating for two, the plentiful proteins, fats, calcium, and iron in fish, dairy, chicken, and meat can contribute to healthy fetal development. However, some animal products can also be tainted with environmental contaminants one will want to avoid. Below are some safer alternatives.

Fish contains brain-building omega-3 fatty acids but it can also have brain-damaging mercury.
