fish oils - have they made your DC brainier? Or not?

Got a free sample of eye q fish oil capsules today.
DS1 (age 4) said they were nice, so at least I know he would take them.

But my mean streak is reluctant to fork out £7 ish a month for them!

So do you think they work?

Possibly made him able to concentrate for longer.
But it's very difficult to know for sure, of course.
It could just be that he's maturing anyway.
But they've definitely cleared up DS1's eczema.
We use Efalex, which are always on Buy 2, Get 1 Free in Boots.

Don't know if they work or not. My ds takes eye q. Worth a try IMO!

He has eczema, so that's another plus point...

Gave them to ds when he was in year 1 and helped him loads with school. His teacher complained that he didn't seem to be paying attention all the time so I tried it and it seemed to help, even with things like doing homework he was alot calmer.
Now he'll be going into year 4 and just came out top of his class this summer.
