Gorton's makes it easy and delicious to enjoy seafood twice a week and meet the USDA guidelines recommendation
Gloucester, MA (PRWEB) March 8, 2011
The message of the USDA's updated Dietary Guidelines is clear: Eat more seafood to help fight obesity and improve your overall health. It recommends increasing consumption of seafood to 8 oz or more per week for those ages 3 and up. (Assuming the typical serving is 4 oz, this recommendation would be equivalent to two servings a week.)
