I don't think so. But moderate on everything is a good thumb rule in my opinion. I think children 2-3 years old get 433mg of DHA/EPA with a minimum of 145mg of DHA, 4-6 years old get 600mg of DHA/EPA with a minimum of 200mg of DHA and 7 years and older including adults get 650 combined with a minimum of 220 DHA. For pregnant women the DHA minimum is 300mg. Infant will receive enough from breast milk and formula. Eggs and fatty fish helps.
