Deliberate Self Care: Fish Oil


I used to give my kiddos omega-3 gummy-style vitamins and figured I'd done my motherly duty. Truly, those things are loaded with sugar and don't really have much omega-3 in them. Ever since I was introduced to Barlean's Omega Swirl, taking our fish oil has been a new daily pleasure for us. Does that sound weird? My kids love this stuff. The lemon flavor is our fave. After breakfast the kids open their mouths and I walk around with the bottle and they each get a squirt. I like mine on my yogurt the best. It's so yummy and has xylitol instead of sugar.
Good for us in so many ways--brain, heart, skin, and attitudes.
