Marine omega-3's are important for a child's health in general, but are especially important for their growing brains.

Is omega-3 okay for kids?
In various human studies, the omega 3 fatty acid Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has been shown to improve Memory, mood, concentration and learning. But as many parents know, it can be extremely difficult to get their kids to consume the RDA of oily fish within their diet, so a supplement such as Eskimo Bright Kids Orange Jelly Splats may prove a useful option for supporting their brain health.
How much omega-3 does a child need per day?
It is said by the UK Government that all British citizens should look to consume two portions of fish per week. A portion is approximately 140 g, however the government also suggests that portions can be smaller if consumed 2-3 times a week. Taking one jelly splat daily provides DHA roughly equivalent to 4-5 small portions of oily fish per week.
Why is vitamin D such a big deal?
As well as the many benefits of omega 3, in particular those for developing brains, the inclusion of Vitamin D to Eskimo-3 Jellies encourages healthy bones and teeth, as well as a healthy immune system. Furthermore, the Department of Health (DoH) recommend children over the age of one should consider supplementing daily with 10 mcg of vitamin D as it is difficult to achieve the level of vitamin D required by the body through diet alone
