Brief description Children born prematurely are more likely to need help at school and to repeat a grade. One of the factors that may be responsible for the poor development of children who were premature may be the lack of an omega-3 fatty acid, called DHA. We have done a study in which feeds of premature infants were supplemented with DHA at a level equivalent to what a baby would recieve in the womb. We now want to see if these children have improved development at school age.
