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 teaspoon daily provides EPA and DHA roughly equivalent to 4-5 small portions of oily fish per week.
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. However, as many parents know, it can be extremely difficult to get their kids to consume the RDA of oily fish within their diet. Eskimo Healthy Kids is an easy way to support children as their brains and bodies develop. It's easy to take too, with a choice of two child-friendly flavours and no fishy aftertaste.
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 works to encourage healthy bones and teeth, as well as the aforementioned immune system. Furthermore, the Department of Health (DoH) recommend children over the age of three 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.
