Omega 3 for kids?

I can't get my children to ever eat fish! And, I believe it is essential for them to receive enough Omega-3 oils for their heart health ... so now my kids take a "Fish Oil" capsule at least once a week! My pediatrician said it was a great idea, these essential oils are not found in kids multi-vitamins! Have any of you had problems with getting your kids to eat fish ? ... well, try this!
