Nordic Berries-Omega Fishies
I am always looking for a way to keep my daughter’s diet healthy. I find that even with the best intentions, there are things she does not want to eat, so I was looking for a healthy, yet tasty vitamin, and that is why I was thrilled to find Nordic Naturals Nordic Berries. Made with cloudberries, these “berries” are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and they taste so good (a sweet and sour citrus). There are no artificial colorings, flavorings or preservatives. They are pectin based and are gelatin and allergin free. They provide 100% of essential nutrients including A, B, C, Ds and E. They are the perfect vitamin for children ages 2 and up. Getting my daughter to take them is easy as she calls them the “candy medicine”. I think that explains it all. They look like little gummy candies, and she loves the taste. I love the little trolls on the packaging! I have to admit, I even love the vitamins themselves and have begun to take them every morning too!
Fishy, Fishy In the Brook:
I have read so much about DHA and EPA being important for children. Why? Well EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids. They are essential for children’s health and hormone, brain, eye and nervous system development. They are proven to promote a healthy immune system, enhance learning ability and improve memory and focus power. I love that Nordic Naturals has the purest, freshest and “greenest” fish oils out there. That means that their fish oil supplements do not have the unpleasant taste of others on the market. International experts recommend 15 mg of EPA+DHA per pound of body weight for children from 2-13, and even more as they get older. Nordic Omega-3 Fishies are fish shaped tangerine flavored treats! Each little fishy has 68mg of EPA and 45mg of DHA (made with purified fish oil from anchovies and sardines). They are artificial color, flavor, preservative, yeast, gluten and milk derivative free. I can attest that kids love them! Imagine one little fishy offering all of those benefits! My daughter just assumes they are a treat and ask for the Fishies every morning. I love that being healthy is for once, something easy!
