Fats and omegas

Fat is an important source of energy. It protects the body against heat loss, helps to take in vitamins A, D and E, and is an important part of the brain. Omega 3 and omega 6 fats are important for brain, eye and immunity. As omegas cannot be made by the body they are referred to as ‘essential fats’ and must be included in small amounts in the diet.
