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

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!
