Infant & Toddler Omega-3 Liquid Drops (1 oz)
PLEASE NOTE: Our first run of this product only states “Toddler” on the label. All future runs will include “Infant” as this product is formulated and safe for Infants & Toddlers!
Our vegan Omega-3 Liquid Drops for Infants and Toddlers are derived from an ocean-friendly, wild strain of sustainably-grown micro-algae. Using a chemical-free extraction of omegas from the algae, the final result is a solvent-free and plant-based liquid omega!
These vegan, liquid Omega-3 Drops primarily contain DHA, or Docosahexaenoic acid. Some studies have concluded that DHA is optimal for normal neural and visual development in infants, and that providing your baby with adequate Omega-3 results in better brain growth and enhanced cognitive performance. These drops may be a great addition for your child’s diet, particularly since many U.S. toddlers consume well below the amounts of DHA & EPA recommended in other countries (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a recommended intake amount). Unlike other omegas, our Omega-3 drops don't have a fishy taste and may be perfect for picky eaters! Simply add the appropriate dosage to your baby or toddler’s favorite food or drink, or give them these liquid drops on their own. Support your child’s health by supplying these important fatty acids.
Each bottle comes with 30 servings.

Q: What amount of Omega-3s are there per serving?
A: Each 1 mL serving contains 378 mg of Algal Oil, which contains 208 mg of Omega-3s, with a breakdown of 200 mg of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and 2 mg of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).
Q: What is your vegan Omega-3 source?
A: While many omega supplements use cod liver oil or another fishy source, our vegan Omega-3 Liquid Drops are sourced from Algal oil, which is derived from an ocean-friendly, wild strain of sustainably-grown micro-algae. Algal oil is an incredible source of DHA!
Q: How do I know what an appropriate dose is when there are no recommended daily values?
A: It is true that there are no FDA recommendations for daily intake of Omega-3s, which makes it hard to know what an appropriate dose might be! Recommendations from health organizations for daily intake vary from 500-700 mg Omega-3 for ages 0-3 years. Ultimately, in order to make the best health decisions possible for your little one, we recommend speaking with your pediatrician, physician, or healthcare professional to best determine what is best for your child.
Q: What is the purpose of the sunflower oil in this product?
A: The sunflower oil & sunflower lecithin in our Omega-3 Liquid Drops is used as a carrier for the antioxidants (Rosemary Extract, Vitamin C Palmitate, Mixed Tocopherols) which we add to the oil to stabilize the ingredient. This antioxidant blend (including the sunflower oil and lecithin) is added in such an amount that the actual amount of sunflower oil used is less than 1% of the total product. In other words, only a very small amount is used!
