There’s no doubt that seaweed is a superfood, and for great reasons. The many benefits of incorporating seaweed into your diet make it an incredible superfood for the family… the whole family!

When looking for a superfood for the family, you can’t go wrong with seaweed. Seaweed is a source of many important vitamins and nutrients which help the body grow and repair itself, including potassium, iron and calcium – which is key for bone development, particularly in children.

But seaweed isn’t just a superfood for the kids – it’s a superfood for the family. There’s been research which has produced findings to suggest seaweed can actually help in managing weight and blood sugar levels. It’s also a healthy, flavour-boosting salt replacement and has been a brain food for centuries!

Seaweed is a superfood for the family due to its essential iodine levels

What really makes seaweed a superfood for the family is the presence of iodine – a key nutritional element which aids the normal function of our bodies in various ways (see below). In the UK, up to 76% of school-aged girls suffer from an iodine deficiency, and the UK is also one of only two well-developed countries in the top 10 iodine deficient countries in the world.

Iodine is vital for children and during pregnancy, making seaweed an essential superfood for the family.

Research that seaweed is a superfood for the family, even during pregnancy, can be found in The Lancet, whose results show the “importance of adequate iodine status during early gestation and emphasise the risk that iodine deficiency can pose to the developing infant, even in a country classified as only mildly iodine deficient. Iodine deficiency in pregnant women in the UK should be treated as an important public health issue that needs attention.”

During pregnancy, many recommend having a slightly higher iodine intake as compared to when not pregnant. Research has shown children born from iodine sufficient women had higher IQ’s than those who were born from iodine deficient women. This continues through childhood.
