Kids ages 8 and 11...hate the OmegaBrite liquid.

They really can't swallow big pills, only real tiny ones.

They won't even take it if it's disguised with something else...and they only have to take a 1/4 tsp.

From what I read, it is supposed to be the best Omega 3 in a high dose.

Are there any tasteless good Omega 3 liquid supps, or any gummies that are not just junk?

You might try Coromega. Kids will take it especially if mixed in with something like fruit yogurt or nutella, etc.

my kids could taste it in everything/anything and they all refused many types and forms.

I gave up, but now my son drinks chololate milk with omegas in it. I know sugar bad, but I have to pick my battles. he is 16 now and eats what he wants anyway from wherever, so nothing I can do but do the best I can.

A trick I did learn form a friend who can't swallow pills....

put the pill in a small marshmallow and swallow that way. it worked for my teen girl that couldn't swallow any pills. now she can no prob, but she is 18 and still will not take any 'fishy' oil!

maybe one day when they are adults... one can hope

Another vote for Coramega here. My very picky young child loves these straight from the packet.

Thank you everyone, for all the advice.

These are my grandchildren, and although I see them often, I don't see them everyday, so I can only do so much to make them take something they don't want to take.

I'll probably get some Coromega for them to try.

I appreciate all of your replies.

Hey Dekrator!

I can't swallow well at all, so I've been using the kids version of omega/fish oils. Nordic Naturals Complete Omega Junior Fish oil, 180 soft gels (lemon drop flavor). Amazon.

I don't chew them as it says you can, they are small enough for me to just swallow and may be the same for your grand children too. I got a real rank/soured fish oil capsule (not this brand) that came open in my throat and coated it years ago and since that happened I don't even want to think about fish oil in my mouth again.

I also see they now have a strawberry flavor soft gel. Here is the description.

These tasty, chewable soft gels and yummy liquids provide a balance of all the omega fats (3, 6, and 9) to support children's brain and eye development, and overall well-being.*

Omega-3.6.9 JuniorTM also delivers important nutrients for nourishing skin, hair, and nails.* Many say that it tastes like a lemon drop.

Hope that helps! And my, those little ones are getting big, aren't they?
