Kids Smart High DHA Fish Oil Chewable Burstlets *Sponsored Post*

*This post was written in collaboration with MomsMeet and Kids Smart High DHA Fish Oil Chewable Burstlets. All opinions are 100% my own.

I was gifted a great set of Kids Smart High DHA Fish Oil Chewable Burstlets in working with MomsMeet, which prompted me to do some research on what the benefits of fish oil and subsequent supplements could do for my family. I will start by saying that based on what I have read and listened to in podcasts and also based on common sense, my best advice is to get your vitamins from the foods that are vitamin rich. In this case, this would be by eating fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines that are rich in these omega-3s. Some plants are rich in another type of omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which the body can convert to DHA and EPA. Good sources of these are flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and canola oil. But we all know that kids won't eat a lot of the stuff that we want them to, am I right? Enter the idea of giving our kids vitamins and supplements.

Per the Health Blog: "Omega-3 fatty acids play important roles in brain function, normal growth and development, and inflammation. Deficiencies have been linked to a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, some cancers, mood disorders, arthritis, and more. But that doesn’t mean taking high doses translates to better health and disease prevention." Make an educated decision on whether or not you think you'd like to give your kids the supplements and then look for the best product for your needs.

So the product that I recieved, Kids Smart Fish Oil, contains a high amount of DHA fish oil (133 mg) which is higher than many options on the market. They come in burstlets in a "chewable" form and I started giving each of my kids one of these with their regular multi-vitamin. My oldest is not into these at all and I get it. I have tried them myself and as an adult, I can understand the taste is still fishy and the chewable casing is not quite chewable in the sense you'd expect. That said, my youngest loves taking these and specifically asks for his "fish vitamins". Like with anything, I would say that whether or not your kids would take these are all dependent on your kids' tastes and whether or not they have issues with consistencies and the like. I don't force my oldes to take these because he's willing to eat salmon. My youngest would live on yogurt if I let him, so you see where my head is at.

The bottle itself sells for less than $8 on Amazon, which to me, is very reasonable for a bottle of 30, a month supply, plus there's a deal below if you are interested. I'd have to say that my overall feeling is that these are good supplement for my youngest until he is willing to eat more fish and perhaps seeds in his diet. But our kids are always growing and changing so just be willing to alter the way you're calculating these types of things based on their diet and food intake.
