The Omega 3 Substitution

Some of you may know that deficiencies in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids have been linked with autism.

All good and well, but have you ever TASTED fish oil? I don't want it, much less my toddler!

So what does a Mom do? Well, I tried lemon flavored omega smoothie supplements (no), raspberry flavored tiny capsule hidden in chocolate almond milk (no), flaxseed oil hidden in apple juice (no).

Then.... I found them!

Omega 3 eggs!!! Boog loves eggs!!

Apparently this wonderful company has free range chickens that they feed flaxseed to. These awesome chickens make 275mg of Omega 3 per egg! The recommended dosage for little ones is somewhere around 700mg per day. So 2-3 eggs and we're good!

These are at Kroger in the healthy section and made by "Simple Truth".
