Earlier this year I realized the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, especially in young children. I have a 3 and 4 year old and I try to encourage healthy eating but I know that they don’t get every nutrient they need in a normal day. I turned to Nordic Naturals and started giving my kids their Omega-3 Jellies. I know that omega-3’s encourage brain functioning as well as development. Omega-3’s have been linked with attention,behavior, learning, literacy, memory and problem solving. There has even been research that shows that fatty acids have a direct link with grades and test scores!


Omega-3s literally make up a part of every cell membrane in your body. Your brain is comprised of 60% fat with gray matter making up approximately 45% of total brain fat, and of that gray matter, approximately 30% of it is made of DHA. It makes sense, then, that omega-3s, and DHA in particular, are crucial for proper development and function of the brain and the nervous system. But that’s not just lip service: A wealth of research continues to reveal links between omega-3s (usually in the form of fish or fish oil supplements) and optimal brain health in children and teens.
