What is the best dose of Omegas for children in treating ADD/ADHD? I know that I have read it must be a higher dose than what the "normal" supplement dose is, but I can't find out a dose. Thanks!

the best source is oily fish. But the problem, as most parents know, is that children don't like it, so Omega-3 supplements are becoming a popular option.

Traditional cod liver oil is not particularly rich in EPA and DHA; it also contains the fat-soluble vitamins A and D, that can be toxic in excess, so high doses are not advisable in the long-term.

In a recent survey, it has been proved that About 450-500mg per day combined EPA/DHA is a reasonable target for both adults and children
