Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable FAQ

Why is it that children may benefit from Omega-3 and nutritional supplements?

Results from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) suggest that the consumption of oily fish, which is the main source of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids, remains low, with children eating well below the recommendation of one portion per week. This is important as EPA and DHA are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made by the body efficiently and therefore must be obtained through the diet. Government surveys have also indicated that children’s diets can sometimes be low in certain nutrients including vitamin D and that many children are not eating the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. This means that children may not be getting all of the vital nutrients that their bodies need for long term health and development. Some foods may have a lower than expected nutritional content and be low in certain micronutrients as a result of several factors including modern farming practices, the lengthy storage of ‘fresh’ food before it is sold in some shops and over cooking which can cause certain nutrients to breakdown. It is important to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle in children and encourage positive eating and exercise habits for later in life. Food supplements are of course not a substitute for a healthy balanced diet!

How many capsules does one tub of Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable contain?

Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable contains 60 capsules.

How and when should Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable be taken?

For children aged 4-12 years. Chew one to two Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable capsules daily preferably with or after a main meal. These capsules have not been designed to be swallowed whole. Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable capsules should not be given to children under the age of 4. It is important to ensure that your child does not take more than the recommended amount. Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable are ideally taken alongside Wellkid Smart Chewable multivitamins to help safeguard Omega-3 intake.

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable?

Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable capsules have no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. As with all supplements, seek professional advice before using if your child is under medical supervision or suffers from any food allergies, or are allergic to soya, fish or fish products. Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable contains tooth friendly sweeteners, which if taken in excess may have a laxative effect.

Is Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable recommended with any other Vitabiotics products?

Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable has been designed so that it can be taken alongside Vitabiotics' Wellkid Smart Chewable.

What is Omega-3?

Omega-3 refers to a special class of fatty acids; alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3 fatty acids can be obtained through the diet from oily fish such as salmon and mackerel and vegetarian sources including flax and hemp seeds, which provide ALA, a precursor of the longer chain Omega-3 fats EPA and DHA. Fish oil such as that used in Wellkid Omega-3 Softburst provides one of the richest sources of Omega-3 available.

Is Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable suitable for vegetarians?

No. Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Wellkid Omega-3 Chewable contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA.
