“Do kids who eat fish automatically go to the head of the class?”

When I was a kid, I distinctly recall the daily ritual of ingesting an oversized spoonful of cod liver oil.  Let’s just say, I would stare at it for a long while, as my mouth was very reluctant to open up. No, the “airplane” did not have a landing pad in my mouth, nor does the “choochoo train”, or the “buzzing bee”, and certainly not for a huge spoon filled with cod liver oil! Blechhhh!

Refined fish oils have long been known to have a variety of health benefits: Omega 3s and vitamins A and B, which promote brain development, bone strength, and vascular system.

A study conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Medicine have found: “Pregnant women who ate more than the recommended two servings of fish a week during their second trimester had preschool children who performed better on verbal, visual, and motor skills tests than their peers.”

They have found that a diet high in Omega 3s outweighs the environmental pollutants of the fish consumed, and this could potentially aid in your child’s mental development.
