The first brand I used was Nordic Naturals Omega 3-6-9 Junior, it's the liquid in the bottle. But I couldnt find it in Canada, so I found a similar product here in Ontario called Ascenta Nutra Sea, Balanced EPA & DHA omega-3 supplement, at The Canadian Superstore. You can buy it online or in the health food stores or organic sections of some big chains.

Here is the link for the Nordic Naturals brand:

Studies have shown that fish oil can be beneficial for brain development, I haven't heard anything on ADHD though.

Nordic Naturals has kiddo size gelcaps and the kids can even chew them.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

Hi,

Yes, I started last year giving fish oil in the liquid format to my son who is now 3. He was diagnosed with a speech delay and I did some research and heard that fish oil helps with brain development, speech, eye contact and social interaction. I figured it was worth a try and within a week of using it, he started saying new words! So , I keep giving it to him. It doesn't taste fishy, it comes with a lemon flavor, so I just add 1/2 tsp of liquid to his morning oatmeal, he loves the taste.

Hope this helps,
Olivia

I was curious if anyone out there has ever given their child fish oil supplements? I am not a huge supplement fan, but my kids do get a daily multi-vitamin because they are extremely picky eaters. I heard a nutritionist give a speech and she mentioned that fish oil can really help hyper-active kids. Just wondering if anyone has tried it, Thanks!
