Today apart from leaving my grocery store muttering ALDI I OWN YOU with my overfilled shopping trolley, I had a sadness in my belly.

Omega-3s are important for your children’s health right from the start. They have been shown to support normal brain function, eye development and a healthy heart. The omega-3 essential fatty acids in fish oil, known as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), help support the transmission of brain signals and provide the necessary building blocks for healthy tissue development. Foods that naturally contain omega-3s, such as oily fish and organ meats, do not tend to be appealing to most…
