my daughter (6 yo) likes to eat fish oil pills as a snack. she actually asks for them, and thinks they taste good. She has been eating them since she was about 2 yo.
My son (2 yo), cant stand fish oil in any form at all, and spits it out immediately. This creates an awful mess to clean up.
So i have been trying to think of ways to increase his omega-3 input by adding flax seed meal and fish oil to foods that he likes. for example I mixed it in his almond butter:
2 cups fresh ground almond butter
1/2 cup flax seed meal
2 tbsp olive oil
I am wondering if anyone else has any clever ideas for introducing omega-3's into food. I am trying to get enough variety, so that in any given day he will have gotten some. Their doctor said around a gram a day is good.
