Getting enough Omega3 in your Diet

Omega-3 fats in Eggs

Q: I hear that Omega-3 is good for growing children but my children don’t like eating fish, how can I get more Omega-3 into their diet?

A: Omega-3 fats are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. Essential means that they cannot be produced in the body and therefore must be obtained from food. Omega 3 fats are needed to ensure the integrity of cell membranes and to help us absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Food sources of Omega 3 fats are eggs, beef, canola oil, linseed oil, soybeans, pumpkin seeds and walnuts so some of these foods could be incorporated into their meals.
