I am trying to find a fish oil supplement for my 6 year old. We try to eat oily fish as much as possible and I have been trying to get better sources for our meat to increase his omega 3 intake. However, I would like to have a good quality supplement to make sure he is getting enough. If any parents out there have a good source that they trust that they would share, it would be much appreciated.

I think a lot of the paleo pundits (including Chris Chresser, Diane Sanfillipo) agree that Green Pastures brand is far and away the best. It's fermented cod liver oil, not fish oil, which is waaay more potent health-wise than fish oil. Green Pastures isn't cheap, but you're paying for serious quality. I take the fermented cod liver oil/butter blend, as recommended by my paleo nutritionist, which is particularly high in Vitamin A, D and others. It was touted by Weston A. Price as a perfect food. If you do buy the Green Pastures products, let me suggest you get the cinammon tingle flavor. By far the most tolerable, especially for kids.

+1 for FCLO - But If FCLO, as recommended by another poster, is not to your liking, try Pharmax fish oil with essential oil of Orange - Also recommended by Dr. Davis of wheat belly fame.
