DHA is a must-have supplement. DHA is an Omega-3 fatty acid. Eating foods rich in DHA may help keep our brains functioning optimally. Since our diets are not the best and it is hard to get children to eat a variety of food, a DHA supplement may be a great substitute for where we are lacking. I use the Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA soft gels during and after pregnancy, and once my kids are old enough we start with the soft gels for kids. The kids’ one is chewable and tastes like strawberries. I like these because they have no sugar coating which I seem to keep running into with children’s supplements.
