Parents are constantly inundated with information on the dietary requirements of their children, and according to a recent Galaxy survey, conducted on behalf of Nature’s Way, most parents rank Omega-3 low on their priority list of important nutrients. While a staggering 99 per cent indicated, they were unaware of the two essential Omega-3 fatty acids - DHA and EPA - found in oily, fatty fish.
“Most of our brain is made up of fat, of which a large part is Omega-3 DHA. as with our eyes. When it comes to children, brain development is rapid in the first few years of life. Omega-3 DHA isn’t something our body can produce naturally, and so Omega-3 rich, fatty fish oils are therefore important for a child’s healthy developing brain,” explains leading Australian Paediatric Dietitian, Kate Di Prima.
Enter Nature’s Way Kids Smart Omega-3 Fish Oil, a delicious fruit flavoured chewable burstlet that is packed full of Omega-3 DHA and EPA.
Scientifically developed and specifically designed with kids in mind, Kids Smart Omega-3 Fish Oil is an easy way to ensure your children are getting their required dose of Omega-3.
The Galaxy survey also indicated that many parents (30 per cent) struggle to get their children to eat fatty oily fish, one of the key foods containing the important DHA essential fatty acid, with only one in ten eating fresh, fatty fish two or more times per week.
Kate continues, “Some scientific research indicates that boosting daily intake of Omega-3 DHA can help to support healthy brain function, learning and behaviour. When kids cannot get the required daily intake of specific nutrients, a supplementation is a great, and often easy way, for parents to ensure their kids are getting a healthy, balanced diet.”
