DS won't take the fermented stuff. He loved the ChildLife Cod Liver oil but I fear it probably contains synthetic vitamin A and D. Anyone have a recommendation on what brands are not synthetic but that kids will take??

Thanks!

I'm sure there is a list on the WAPF site somewhere of next best products. I've been too scared to splash out on fermented as it is so pricy and my kids adore the cod liver oil we get. As far as I'm aware there aren't any added ingredients except orange oil.

We use Dr. Ron's, the cinammon flavor. My kids love it.

Try http://www.greenpasture.org/retail/?...display&i=1104

also check out this link for ideas: http://www.cookingtf.com/children.html I've also heard of hiding it in chocolate sauce. We like maple syrup with it around here.

And my youngest two like Quantum http://www.radiantlifecatalog.com/pr...ds-supplements IMO not as good as the Blue Ice brand but no synthetics in it so pretty good.

Keep experimenting!

My DS (almost 4) will take the FCLO in cinnamon, we haven't tried any other flavors. He also loves the Blue Ice FCLO gummy fish, which are cinnamon flavored as well. I think that the gummy fish have gone over better with him, it's a lot easier to hand him a little fish than to try to get him to take a liquid.
