What is the daily recommended intake of DHA and EPA?

The WHO (World Health Organization) and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) recommend children consume the following DHA and EPA amounts daily:

Age Group

Recommended Daily Amount

6-24 months DHA: 10-12 mg/kg body weight
2-4 years DHA + EPA: 100-150mg
4-6 years DHA + EPA: 150-200mg
6-10 years DHA + EPA: 200-250mg
>10 years DHA + EPA: 250-2000mg

However – it’s really tricky to get the complete daily amount into your child’s diet from food alone, for example, your child would need to drink up to 8glasses of kids’ milk** to get one day’s daily amount!

*1 spoon = 15ml
One 15ml spoon = 1.48g of cod liver oil.
Scott’s Emulsion cod liver oil contains DHA 165.8/mg/15ml and EPA 165.8mg/15ml –ALS Ref.ALSM140762 dated 20 Oct 15.
