Omega-3 fats are a group of unsaturated fats that make up the structure and foundation of every body cell. The body can’t make omega-3s so they must be provided in the diet, which is why they’re called essential fats or essential fatty acids. Two essential omega-3s called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are particularly important for human health. EPA supports heart health and DHA is a key component of the eyes and the nervous system. Both are needed at every stage of development and throughout life, including childhood.
Scientific research showed that Australian children aren’t getting the omega-3s the need. Study estimates show that just 6% of Australian children are meeting the recommended dietary intake of omega-3 fats. BiOmega Jr. is a children’s omega-3 formulation in a child-friendly, tasty gel pack developed as an important way of reaching this health goal. Eating two to three meals of oil-rich fish like salmon and trout per week is the other way to get omega-3s, but many children don’t like the strong taste of oily fish.
BiOmega Jr. doesn’t have any fishy taste or after-taste and comes in a tasty sugar-free, orange flavoured gel, making it easy for parents to administer. BiOmega Jr. can be taken straight from the packet or stirred into yogurt or other creamy foods like custard. It comes in a pack of 14 convenient single-serve pouches at a very affordable price.
