I'm looking for an EFA supplement for my son. He's 2 1/2 and has a feeding and swallowing disorder, so he can't take chewable vitamins (can't chew), and obviously doesn't swallow pills yet. Does anyone know of a liquid form that I can mix with his food that tastes OK and isn't too expensive? And is there a vegetarian version (like flax, maybe) or are they all fish based?


Anyone have any suggestions?

WE take blue ice cod liver oil. It's amazing for its health benefits. It doesnt taste great but DD will shoot it with a little OJ or pomegranate juice

Omega swirl by Barleans is bar FAR the tastiest! hey have a couple vegetarian versions, and the flavors are great: Strawberry banana, blueberry pomegranate, etc. You can kind them at health food stores in the fridge or place like whole foods I think. If a store carries any of the barleans stuff, they can probably order it for you, and I think if you call or write barleans they are sending out samples of their swirl products.
