Tuna is an excellent source of protein and contains good fats. Tuna can be a great source of nutrition for children as well. It is good to keep in mind that tuna does still contain elements that may be risky for pregnant women or very small children. It is best keep moderation when eating anything really.
Nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury. For most people, the risk from mercury by eating fish and shellfish is not a health concern. Yet, some fish and shellfish contain higher levels of mercury that may harm an unborn baby or young child’s developing nervous system. Pregnant women should stay away from fish that contains high levels of dangerous mercury such as Swordfish, Shark and Mackerel for example.

Sceintific studies have shown that Pregant women have cut out all types of fish for fear of toxins. The key is to kowing which fish contain the highest levels and eating the fish that has actual bebfits such as healthy tuna
