Children need Omega-3 for every stage of their development. It boosts their brains, strengthens their immune systems and lifts their mood. It is also claimed to improve behaviour, reduce anxiety and helps to improve language. Sounds too good to be true – yet scientific research continues to show impressive results.
BUT HOW DO YOU ENSURE YOUR KIDS ARE GETTING ENOUGH??
Well as a parent, we’re told to feed our children oily fish twice a week, but this is easier said than done. It certainly doesn’t happen in this house anyway and very often you will find that kids like to eat plain foods with most baulking at the sight and smell of fish. So how do we sneak these essential Omega 3 fatty oils into their bodies? A supplement is the simple answer.
Both James and myself take Eskimo-3. James takes his Eskimo Kids right off the spoon but I have been giving it to him since he was one so he really doesn’t know any different. Many of my friends however struggle to get their kids to take it off the spoon so here are some clever ways of hiding it in food:
Eskimo-3 Kids is available in two flavours – Zingy Orange and Tutti Fruity. While Tutti Frutti is a favourite of many due to a bubble gum flavour, orange is ideal if you need to disguise it into food or drink. Due to a very mild orange flavour, Eskimo-3 Kids orange can be disguised in many ways:

Eskimo-3 kids is one of the purest fish oils available today and has been on the Market for more than 20 years. Extracted from the flesh of the fish and not the liver, it goes beyond the strictest laws to ensure you get a fresh and stable oil, free from contaminants and heavy metals like mercury; therefore “as clean as nature intended.”
As a mum and nutritional coach I know that James needs more than just a multivitamin to support his health. A child’s brain and nervous system have different fatty acid requirements whilst growing and the great thing about Eskimo-3 Kids is that it has been specifically formulated to combine natural fish oil with natural plant oils, providing a balance of omega-3, -6 and -9 that reflects these needs. Omega fatty acids are ideal support for our kids health, brain function and all-round ability, helping them to achieve their full potential at school too!
