I'm looking for a mild tasting fish oil supplement for my three year old and six year old. Any suggestions?

It looks like your post may have been missed, so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have a recommendation to share?

Carlson has a liquid that tastes like lemon and mixes into applesauce that I used to give my daughter.

I buy the orange or lemon flavor gel caps from carlson, and my 5YO DD just chews them. I swallow them. I give her 1 a day and I take 2-3 a day.

Nordic Naturals has gel capsules for children, I think, with a natural strawberry flavor to the coating. My daughter has tried samples before and likes them. I know some bloggers have made cod liver oil gummies and given them to their children with success. You might want to try looking that up as well.

Fish oil has a lot of omega 3, so you can give it to everyone!
