Kids can be very particular about their likes and dislikes so it is important to give them a supplement that tastes great and that they are happy to take. Wellkid Peppa Pig Omega-3 are premium quality soft jellies, for children aged 3-7 years, that provide a vegetarian form of Omega-3 in a delicious natural orange flavour that kids love. These soft jellies are suitable for vegans too.
Natural Orange Flavour
The importance of Omega-3
Over the last 10 years, the awareness of the importance of Omega-3 has grown, and ensuring your child receives enough Omega-3 is a valuable step towards giving him or her the best start in life. 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. Children are eating well below the minimum recommendation of two portions of fish per week, including one portion of oily fish.
Omega-3 can be found in high concentrations in oily fish, such as mackerel, sardines, trout and (fresh) tuna. However, as parents know, many children do not like the taste of oily fish so it can be difficult to ensure your child is getting all the Omega-3 they need and the minimum one portion per week.
Vegetarian flaxseed oil is a rich source of Omega-3 alpha-Linoleic acid. The body converts this into DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). DHA is needed because it plays a structural role in the cells of the central nervous system. EPA is required because it is essential for optimal brain function and cell signalling
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. More and more published research is highlighting the importance of these essential fatty acids.

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. Vegetarian flaxseed oil is a rich source of Omega-3 alpha Linoleic acid.
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 overcooking which can cause certain nutrients to break down. 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!

"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."
"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. I will continue buying your products as I enjoy them greatly and prefer them to other brands. Sent with many thanks. "
“Hi, Just a quick email to give a little feedback. My 4 year old son, who is a very fussy eater, uses your soft jelly vitamins and he absolutely loves them. We are currently using the strawberry flavour, he happily eats one a day. Thank you and we look forward to continuing to use your products in the future.”
"I had taken Pregnacare when I was pregnant with my son and the doctor who delivered him remarked that he had never seen such an alert baby! When he was old enough, I gave him WellBaby drops and now that he is 4 years old, I give him the WellKid Jelly Pastilles. He absolutely loves the taste and always looks forward to taking his vitamins. My son is bilingual, and is growing up healthy and strong and everyone comments on how fast he picks up things. Thank you very much for worldwide shipping!"
"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."

I will be continuing to use the wellkid products throughout her childhood! "
