There’s Something Unfishy Going On Here

1504.jpgI can’t speak for anyone else but I find fish oil to be, well, kind of gross. I mean it tastes how fish smell and I think we can all agree, that’s not good. But because I know that fish oil is really good for you, I force myself to take it regardless of how cringeworthy I find it. However, getting my kids to tolerate the stinky fish oil is another matter altogether. Simply put…they won’t. Well, they didn’t until just recently when I started giving them Nordic Naturals Tangerine Omega-3 Gummies, which they love. They’re like little gumdrops with the most awesome tangerine flavor and my kids and I would eat them like candy if we could. They’re that good and that unfishy (and are purified to the degree that environmental toxins are undetectable when tested). Yes, they contain a wee bit of sugar but in my opinion, it’s well worth feeding my kids a little organic sucrose/organic evaporated cane juice to be able to get the fish oil down their gullets with nary a complaint. Why do I say this?  Because the omega-3 essential fatty acids (DHA and EPA) found in fish oil support development of the brain, eyes, and nervous and immune systems in young children (and adults, too). If you’d asked me a year ago if I’d take a fish oil supplement that tasted like a juicy tangerine, I would have said YES! and then laughed at you for suggesting something so impossible but it’s no joke—fish oil CAN taste good. Oh, and just in case great taste doesn’t impress you, Nordic Naturals is also a socially and environmentally responsible company.
