  • I give my son Coromega. It is all natural without any artifical colors, flavors or preservatives, plus it is free of the most common allergens and it comes in great tasting flavors - orange, lemon-lime and chocolate-orange. It's a liquid that comes in single-serve packets, so you can just give your child one packet a day, so no dosing issues either. My son takes it willingly because it tastes good.

  • I have found them at different prices at different places and, of course, always go with the cheaper one, but cost really isn't a factor for me, I simply want the highest quality product I can get that he will actually take. I figure, it doesn't matter if it is a cheap if I'm just going to end up tossing it out, kwim? But to answer your question, it's about $35 for a 90 ct. package, which is a 3-month supply, so it works out to slightly less than $12 a month.

  • I give the Dr. Sears Omega-3 DHA fruit chews. They would not take any of the liquids.

  • First of all, hemp oil is a better option; it has the optimal blend of Omega 3, 6 and 9. It can be added to smoothies or used in salad dressing (don't heat it)

    Add a magnesium supplement, too.
