Nordic Naturals delivers pure, safe, effective high quality omega fish oils in support of optimal health and wellness. As an industry leader and innovator, Nordic Naturals strives to support a better quality of life while maintaining a deep respect for the environment.

Their multi-patented manufacturing and purification processes remove any potential environmental toxins, while maintaining the integrity of the oils. All oils are manufactured in triglyceride form to best preserve the oil and enhance absorption and utilization.

Nordic Naturals has advanced fish oil quality by developing patented fish oil technologies that include flavoring, taste, delivery and processing. They utilize proprietary enzymatic and oxygen-free processing technologies to ensure a light fruity tasting product with no burp-back. To ensure consistent quality, Nordic Naturals adheres to and exceeds stringent European Pharmacopoeia Standards (EPS), as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) for all of their oils.

Essential Nutrients for Kids

Essential Nutrients for KidsBy Jacquie Eubanks BSN, RN

Good nutrition helps prevent illness and disease and is essential to healthy physical and mental development. The American Academy of Pediatrics encourages parents to think of nutritional decisions as health decisions.  Nearly 1 in 3 children in America are now overweight or obese.  And like adults, kids who consistently overeat are at risk for developing the medical problems associated with being overweight, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, bone and joint problems, breathing and sleeping problems, and even depression. Later in life they are at greater risk for heart disease, heart failure, and stroke. Encouraging your child to make beneficial food choices now will help them develop wholesome eating patterns that can lead to a lifetime of healthier choices.   

It’s not always easy to get kids to eat what’s on their plates.  These strategies improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits:

  • Have regular family meals.  Eating together allows parents and kids to reconnect and catch up on the day’s events.  Kids who sit down to family meals are more likely to eat fruits, vegetables and grains and are less likely to snack on unhealthy foods. 
  • Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.  You control the supply lines, so stock up on fruits, vegetables and healthy snacks such as low-fat yogurt and cheese, whole grain crackers, or nuts.  Limit chips, cookies, candy and sugary drinks but don’t ban them completely.  Serve them occasionally as a special treat.  
  • Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.  Keep a positive approach to food, limit your own portions and don’t overindulge in less nutritious foods.  Kids will follow your lead. 
  • Avoid food battles which means no bargaining or bribing kids to eat everything on their plate.  Provide variety and let your child choose from what you offer.  A growing child’s eating pattern will vary day to day.  Let them decide when they are hungry and when they are full. 
  • Involve kids in the process.  Kids love to help in the kitchen so select age appropriate tasks for them to do.  Let them be involved in occasional meal planning and help them make decisions about what to pack for lunch. 

Nutrition for kids is based on the same principle as nutrition for adults.  In addition to the nutrient dense foods of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products, there are vitamins and minerals that all growing children need for growth and development:

Vitamin A  –  Vitamin A  boosts the immune system which fights common infections.  Vitamin A promotes general eye health plus color and night vision.  Make sure your child gets plenty of orange vegetables and fortified milk. 

B Vitamins  –  B complex vitamins are needed for anemia prevention and for energy production and usage.  B vitamins are found in whole grains, fish, chicken, leafy greens, dairy and meat.

Vitamin C –  Vitamin C helps speed healing of cuts and scrapes and helps ward off colds and  fight infections.  Fruits, especially oranges, and green leafy vegetables are good sources of vitamin C.

Vitamin D Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption for developing strong bones and teeth.  Foods fortified with vitamin D include milk, cereal and eggs. 

Calcium Calcium helps build strong bones and teeth and can help reduce the chances of developing age related bone disease.  The majority of our lifetime bone mass is built during our pre-teen and teen years.  Low-fat dairy is the best source of calcium in a child’s diet and includes  cheese, milk and yogurt.  Fortified cereals and orange juice are options for those who are lactose intolerant. 

Choline –  An important essential nutrient needed for the central nervous system function and cell growth.  Eggs, fish, meat, broccoli and chicken are good sources. 

IronFor healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the body and help keep kids energized.  Iron can be found in fortified foods, beans and lean red meats. 

MagnesiumImportant for energy and healthy heart function.  Look for magnesium in cereals, brown rice and nuts. 

Potassium –  Kids need potassium to support their organs and cells.  Potassium maintains blood pressure, supports the heart and muscle function.  Bananas and low-fat dairy are good sources. 

ZincZinc helps fight viruses and supports the immune system.  Zinc is necessary for growth and development.  Look for zinc in chicken, beans and fortified cereals. 

FiberKids need fiber to aid digestion and prevent constipation.  Offer lots of fruits and vegetables and whole grains including high-fiber cereals.

Water – Limit sugar laden fruit juices to breakfast time and give your child the choice of milk or water at other times.  Be sure to provide plenty of water throughout the day and encourage your child to drink up. 

Antioxidants –  Antioxidants help defend against harmful substances that can damage healthy cells.  Almonds, berries, citrus fruits and carrots are some kid friendly foods high in antioxidants. 

Essential fatty acidsChildren require both EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids as part of their healthy diet, especially for brain development and eye function.  If your child refuses to eat fish regularly or at all,  supplements made for children containing EPA/DHA are a safe, effective way to give your child’s mental and physical well-being a boost. 

It’s best not to get into a battle of wills at mealtimes.  Try to make breakfast and lunch the priority meals as young children are often tired and less likely to eat well at dinnertime.  Offer a variety of healthy foods and allow your child to be in charge of choosing which items to eat and how much.  Children allowed to make their own decisions at mealtimes are more likely to enjoy their meal and feel good about themselves.  You can feel good also, knowing that you are raising a healthy eater and establishing patterns that will lead to a lifetime of healthy nutrition.
