One of the best children's supplements: Eskimo-3 Kids

This month I'm discussing nutritional advice for children in terms of an essential fats supplement. These essential fats are needed by the body (eg like protein) but cannot be made by the body, and therefore must be consumed (from your diet or supplements). The most important of these essential fats are omega 3s.

The omega-3s are the most critical building blocks of the brain. It boosts brains, strengthens immune systems and lifts mood. It is also linked to improved behaviour, reduced anxiety and improved language. Without these, it can become difficult for children to concentrate, learn new information, and balance their moods properly. So nutritionally essential fats are a must for children. 

For children who don't eat oily fish (e.g., sardines, salmon or mackerel) twice a week, omega-3s are in short supply during the most critical stages of brain development. Therefore Im recommending one of the best supplements for children- Eskimo-3 Kids.

These supplements are specifically formulated for childrens' needs, are pure (free from contaminants) and are scientifically backed. Children for example, who took the Eskimo-3 Kids daily for 4 months had 60-70% reduction in common ailments such as eczema, upper airway infections and recurrent colds.

These supplements also contain vitamin D, well known for its role in building strong bones and supporting the immune system.

 The oil comes in two delicious natural flavours: tutti-frutti flavour and orange flavour. In addition they contain no sugar or sweeteners and no fishy after-taste.
 
All you need is one 5ml spoon once a day and its suitable for those aged 1-12 years.
 
If your children find it challenging to take the oil directly, check out the suggestions below for 10 ways to add it into food or drink to boost the nutrition of their food. Best to add it to something warm or cold, rather than hot (as the essential fats can easily be destroyed by heat).

If the oil isn't an option, there are also chewables available: Eskimo-3 Kids Chewable DHA+ . These are orange flavoured and are suitable for children aged between 3 and 12 years.

 Please note that I did not receive any gain from Eskimo 3 for writing this.
