Nordic Naturals: The Best, Tastiest Omega-3 Supplements for Kids!

I'm a huge fan of Dr. Sears and a subscriber to his online newsletter. He's always touting the benefits of omega-3 essential fatty acids, DHA and EPA for the healthy development of children, so I scoured the market for the very best of these supplements to give Olivia. Nordic Naturals is top notch and their children's line of supplements is sure to please the palates of your children. There's no need to look any further than Nordic Naturals, as I've done the research for you!

A vitamin or supplement is only going to work if your child will actually take it. Mention "fish oil" and they'll typically go running, screaming in the other direction (so would I, quite frankly). But Nordic Naturals actually taste delicious, (the gummies taste like candy), so kids will eagerly pop them in their mouths to reap their benefits. They are also gluten free, and free of artificial colorings, flavorings and preservatives.

A few of the many benefits of omega-3s DHA and EPA:
  • Fish Oil is linked to improved learning, memory and spelling ability
  • DHA & EPA (omega-3s) support normal brain development, cell membrane flexibility, visual and nervous system function, and they help improve focus, mood and disposition
  • Nordic Naturals supplements provide the safest way to ingest omega-3 fatty acids without having to worry about mercury levels in fish
Another thing I love about Nordic Naturals as a company is their sustainability practices and environmental awareness. They adhere to the strict fishing policies of the Norwegian government, and they only fish from abundant waters, utilizing species of fish that are flourishing. None of the fish species they use are endangered: sardines, anchovies, Norwegian Arctic cod. Their fish oils are 750 times purer than fish, so they provide all of the health benefits of omega-3s with no risk of toxicity.

In addition to promoting the wellness of individuals via their fish oils, Nordic Naturals donates to over a dozen organizations including La Leche League, Toys for Tots, Autism Speaks, and Save Our Shores.

As members of the 'green' movement, we should all support companies such as Nordic Naturals, which go above and beyond in their production of the highest quality products, while making sure to protect the planet with their business practices and ethics.

Kids benefit greatly from omega-3s, and there are many shoddy supplement options on the market, but with Nordic Naturals, you can rest assured you're getting the very best for your child.

Visit the Nordic Naturals site to find the age appropriate supplement for your child. While you're there, be sure to check out their entire product line which includes great fish oil supplements for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

I absolutely LOVE Nordic Naturals. I give my 15 month old their DHA liquid. It is a wonderful product, and I want to try more of what they have to offer.

This is a very informative post. EPA fish oil is good for health in a number of ways. It mainly takes care of the brain. It controls depression both during and after pregnancy. It also builds the motor skills of the unborn child while still in the mother’s womb. EPA fish oil is thus very effective in passing the messages between the nerve cells of the brain.
