Do kids need fish oil?

Absolutely! DHA is a form of Omega-3 fatty acid which comes from fish, and it is CRUCIAL to healthy brain development. There’s a lot of emphasis on DHA during infant years, but the need continues throughout childhood.

How do I get my kids to take fish oil?

The key is giving it to them in a form they can tolerate. The most common product I recommend is this Nordic Naturals Children’s DHA gummy. It’s a zero-sugar formula containing clean-sourced fish, so you get the all benefits without the harm.

  • Provides 600 mg total omega-3s in each serving
  • Easy-to-chew omega-3 for ages 2+
  • Promotes healthy nervous system and immune function*
  • Delicious, tropical punch flavor with zero added sugar
  • Supports learning and healthy brain development*
  • Easy-to-open packs perfect for on-the-go convenience
  • No artificially derived coloring, flavoring, or preservatives
