8 Fluid Ounces – Serving size = ½ teaspoon 96 servings per bottle
550mg total Omega-3’s per serving (EPA-190/DHA-255/Other-105)
I purchased this at “Mom’s” Organic Market. $19.89
Nordic Naturals directly for $25.95
While the Nordic Naturals Gummy Fish got my children on their way (total omega-3s 136 mg per serving) there was still a long way to go to meet their omega-3 daily requirement.
According to the Food and Nutrition Board Institute of Medicine, children between the ages of 1-3 require 700 mg of total omega-3s daily, and children ages 4-8 need about 900 mg. Girls ages 9-13 require 1,000 mg and boys of the same age range need about 1,200 mg per day. These total omega-3 fatty acid recommendations include omega-3s from DHA, EPA, ALA and other forms.
This liquid product has been embraced by my texture-sensitive son. (You know the kind of child I’m talking about: “It’s too slimy! It’s too wet! It’s too thick!”) The consistency is similar to olive oil (which he loves) and is strawberry flavored. This combined with the fact that the serving size is a mere ½ teaspoon he’s happy with this and a gummy fish chaser!
My opinion – well, if he’s happy I’m happy. But in the interest of being fair, I tried it too. Not enough strawberry flavor for my palate, but the kids like it.
