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!

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.

Top

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.

Wellkid Reviews  


"The Wellkid Peppa Pig vitamins are the first vitamins my five-year-old son has ever willingly taken! Normally, he can't bring himself to chew let alone finish a gummy vitamin but he actively looks forward to taking these. I've had to hide the jar from him as he's so keen! The other day, we came home and he ran straight to the living room to get a vitamin, which he sat sucking while doing his homework - unprompted! They seem to be something of a miracle product."Mrs G G , United kingdom

"I would like to thank you for your outstanding Wellkid products that I have recently tried over the last occurring months. You see, I cannot have certain foods because of my dietary needs.

Thank you very much for worldwide shipping!"Mrs A Y , Japan

"I have been using Vitabiotics for my children for many years and I am very happy with it. First of all, we trust the brand, the children like the tablets as they are chewable and taste great, and unlike many others in the market, they are also suitable for vegetarians. My children take them daily: One of my children is the Italian and British U10 Chess Champion, one is already studying a degree course in Mathematics at the age of 15 (not to mention his other many academic achievements at a very young age) and one is a little prodigy in playing the Piano, therefore is essential I take good care of their diet, especially when travelling to other countries, and I feel they benefit from good vitamins supplements like WellKid."Mrs T Contu , United Kingdom

"I have recently started using WellKid baby drops for my daughter who is currently 8 weeks old and am writing to say how fab they are! The syringe makes it so easy to give to her and she LOVES the orange taste!

I will be continuing to use the wellkid products throughout her childhood! "Mrs S Anderson , United Kingdom
