Why Choose Eskimo®-3 Little Cubs?
Eskimo®-3 Little Cubs is an easy way to support children as their brains and body's develop. It's easy to take with a choice of 2 child-friendly flavours and with no fishy taste it's ideal for kids who don't eat much fish. The added vitamin D also provides support for everyday health including immune function and healthy teeth and bones. The Department of Health recommend children over the age of 1 should consider supplementing daily with 10mcg of Vitamin D as it is difficult to achieve the level of Vitamin D required by the body through diet alone. Taking 1 teaspoon daily provides EPA and DHA roughly equivalent to 4 or 5 small portions of oily fish per week.
Little Cubs features omega-3 from pure and stable fish oil, and omega-6 and -9 from plant oils to provide an optimal balance of fatty acids, together with vitamins D to support immune health.
Why Are Essential Fatty Acids Important For Kids' Health?
No longer deemed the bad guys, we now know that dietary fats are absolutely crucial for health, and are especially important for the growing child. One particular type of fats, omega-3s, have become the subject of extensive and ongoing research over recent years. Omega-3s are the fats you find in large quantities in oily fish such as tuna, mackerel and salmon, and they are known to be helpful for virtually all aspects of health including heart, brain, mood, joints, vision and inflammation. However, the typical western diet is low in omega-3s, as we simply don't eat enough fish, in particular the oily fish needed to supply the body with the essential omega-3s it needs. It can be especially difficult to get our children to eat enough oily fish in their diet, so supplementing can be a useful option for supporting their overall health.
