Omega-3 for School Children
Give your little Einstein a head-start with smart fats.
Smart Fats for School Children
School children’s concentration levels need smart fats. Omega-3 fatty acids are the most critical building blocks of the brain.
Back to School
Whether your child is returns to school in September after a hot, fun-filled summer, or starts school for the first time, preparing to go back to school can be stressful for both you and your child.
You may already have added a new school uniform, lunch box, and pencil case to the back to school shopping list. However, it is also important to ensure your child’s concentration levels are back in full gear for the upcoming school year.
There are old sayings that “eating fish will make you intelligent” and that “fish is brain food”. Recent studies have shown once again that this may well be true and that the reason lies in the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid).
Why Children Need Omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids are the most critical building blocks of the brain. They are considered essential, and must be obtained through diet or supplementation. Without these important fats, it can become difficult for children to concentrate, learn new information, and balance their moods properly. Since most children do not eat oily fish on a regular basis, omega-3s are in short supply during the most critical stages of brain development.
A 2012 study found Omega 3 DHA had a profound improvement in reading age, concentration and learning ability in children. Lower levels of DHA were attributed to poorer reading and impaired performance. A more recent study revealed that increased omega-3 levels can boost behaviour, attention and literacy in ADHD children.
Sunshine and Vitamin D for Kids
Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. It is a sizzling hot topic that is receiving plenty of media and scientific attention. Vitamin D is well known for its part in building strong bones and teeth. It’s not just about bones though. Vitamin D is needed for a healthy immune system. This helps the body to fight off infections. These include throat infections and asthma.
Low levels of vitamin D are often associated with S.A.D (also known as the winter blues).
Our primary source of this nutrient is the sun. We can convert this into plenty of vitamin-D in the skin. However, Ireland does not get as much sun as we would like. So, for most of the year, it is vital to supplement.
Omega-3 DHA for School Kids
Unless your children are eating 3 portions of oily fish a week, a pure Omega 3 DHA is a must. We have the answer! Consume just one 5ml spoon of Eskimo-3 Kids a day should be top of every parents shopping list, available in two delicious flavours, zingy orange and funky tutti frutti.
Eskimo-3 Kids Fish Oils
On the market for more than 20 years, Eskimo-3 Kids is one of the purest fish oils available today. Extracted from the flesh of the fish and not the liver, it goes beyond the strictest laws to ensure you get a fresh and stable oil. It is free from contaminants and heavy metals like mercury. Therefore, it is as clean as nature intended.
Health and Brain Function Support for School Kids
Today’s parents know that their children need more than just a multivitamin to support their health. Because a child’s brain and nervous system have different fatty acid requirements whilst growing, Eskimo-3 Kids has been specifically formulated to combine natural fish oil with natural plant oils. This provides a balance of omega-3, 6 and 9 that reflects these needs. Omega fatty acids are ideal support for the health, brain function and all-round ability of children. It helps them to achieve their full potential at school.
