Wow, I have never thought to look for a podcast from a grocery store. This line is very informative, though!

Very informative podcast!! This information is especially important as our kids go back to school and are often faced with lunches/snacks that are nutritionally below-par. Making sure that our kids get the correct supplements, like those mentioned in the podcast, and ensuring that their meals contain EFA-rich foods (i.e. walnuts, salmon, enriched eggs, squash, etc.) helps kids stay alert & active throughout the day. http://modmom.blogspot.com

EFA supplementation for babies? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) tells us that the adequate intake for omega-3s for infants is 0.5 g/day, which is based on average breast milk levels. (Breast milk or fortified formula should supply adequate omega-3s up to 6 months, so no supplementation should be needed for baby if mom's intake and/or the formula is adequate. After 6 months, a combination of breast milk and complementary foods should supply adequate intake. If complementary foods and breast milk or formula are not supplying the recommended 0.5 g/day, we recommend working with your health care provider to determine the best course of action for supplementation. (Note that if supplementation is recommended, wait until at least a year for fish oil supplements due to allergy concerns. Instead, consider algal-derived DHA supplements or DHA-enriched foods.)

This was the first time that I've ever listened to the Whole Food podcast, and it was so informative. I especially was interested in the concept of the fish oils and all that they can do to help us. My granddaughter just started on hers, and loves them! Great information on the podcast...I intend to be an avid listener. Thanks!

Does anyone know why nordic naturals strwberry flavored fish oil dha is only for ages 3 and up? I've been giving these to my 2 1/2 yr old and am now really concerned after reading the back of the bottle. It is printed in red bold print. The person at the store I purchased from recommended these and knew my son was 2. Anyone?

Essential fat supplements for toddlers: In this case, contacting the company will be the best way to find out the rationale regarding product age recommendations. www.NordicNaturals.com or 800-662-2544. They will be able to give more details than here, although we see no cause for alarm.
