Long chain omega 3s are only found in oily fish I think and my ds hates oily fish. Any ways i can hide it in a recipe...he does get those omega 3 eggs but i think these are short-chain omega 3s and they dont have the same brain benefits...

Sorry, I don't understand what you want people to comment on. Can you elaborate please?

ways to disguise oily fish in recipes
...or, an additional thought, does anyone have any thought on long chain and short chain omega threes - their benefits and sources (long shot I know)

HOw old is your son?

I use these capsules on my daughters
http://www.1stvitality.com/acatalog/children_fish_oils_dha.html. They are more expensive than some omega 3 you can get but they are better quality and don't contain any 'nasties'.

They are also strawberry flavoured making them ideal for hiding in smoothies or yogurt for v. young children.

My girls (now 3) will just take the capsules without the need to hide them in food. There are others you can take. EyeQ, Eskimo-3 kids that come in a variety of flavours.

Hope this helps.

I think Linseed may contain omega-3, if it is then you can just sprinkle a spoonful on muesli. I'd google it though as children need omega3 not 6 for brain development (according to all the bumph).

ds is 20 months...do you just open the capsules and hide it in yoghurt?
I heard the omega 3s in non-fish sources are short chain and its the long chain omega threes you need for brain development...
