Why Is DHA Important For Children?

Why is DHA important for children?

Did you know 90% of your child's brain development takes place by age 6! We all know DHA is an important part of this development, but what does it actually do?

DHA is a major building block of the brain. It is an important polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acid found in high levels in the brain and eyes. To support your child's brain development and function, an adequate daily intake of DHA should be included as part of a balanced diet.

As we know, it can be hard to achieve a child's daily recommended amount of important Omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA through food alone, which is why Scott's Emulsion Original is the easy and affordable option. Scott's Emulsion is made from cod liver oil, and contains Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA + EPA). Just one spoon* of Scott's Emulsion Original everyday gives your child 100%** of the daily recommended amount of DHA plus EPA they need.
