Taking a daily fish oil supplement is a simple way to safeguard your child's health and help them reach their full potential in school.
Eskimo-3 is committed to delivering safe, sustainably sourced, effective omega-3 and the multi award-winning Eskimo-3 Kids is an omega-369 supplement designed specifically for children. It's rated 5 stars on TrustPilot and was recently voted the Best Omega-3 supplement in the National Parenting Products Awards, Mums and Tots Awards and the Rude Health Awards.
The formula is packed with omega-3 DHA to support brain function, concentration and vision, along with omega-6 which is good for mood. Vitamin D, which is vital for a healthy immune system as well as strong bones and teeth, is in there too.
the benefits of Omega-3
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are considered essential because they are needed for optimal health. However, they cannot be produced by our bodies and therefore must be consumed daily through diet or supplementation. You can think of these nutrients as the building blocks of your child’s body. They perform support functions essential to children, including healthy brain development, brain function and visual function, and are vital for healthy growth and development in general.
Without these important fats, it can become difficult for children to concentrate, learn new information, and balance their moods properly. In fact, a 2012 study found Omega-3 DHA had a profound improvement in reading age, concentration and learning ability in children. Lower levels of DHA were attributed to poorer reading and impaired performance.
HOW MUCH IS NEEDED?
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) states that we need 250 mg DHA daily to support healthy brain function. It is recommended that we eat 2-3 portions of oily fish (such as sardines, salmon, anchovies, mackerel) a week. Unfortunately, an IPSOS/MRBI survey showed that 89 per cent of Irish people across all age groups fail to eat even one portion of oily fish per week, so there is often a need to supplement with a premium fish oil such as Eskimo-3 Kids.
THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
Vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin", is well known for its role in building strong bones and teeth and The Irish Osteoporosis Society has called on parents to keep Vitamin D intake top of mind as we head for the winter months. It’s not just about bones though; Vitamin D is also needed for a healthy immune system. With reports indicating that 88 per cent of primary school children in Ireland have vitamin D intakes below the recommended amount, supplementing with this vital nutrient may help to reduce their chances of missing school due to illness.
a Great-tasting daily essential
Eskimo-3 kids is available in tutti frutti (raspberry type flavour) or orange. If your child finds it difficult to take it off the spoon, the liquids can be easily added to smoothies, yoghurt etc. (We have a great smoothie recipe below).
Another option is the delicious orange-flavoured Eskimo-3 Kids chewable. It's soft to chew and rich in omega-3, vitamin D, biotin and choline for brain function.
