Nature’s Own Omega Delight Review and Giveaway

February 29, 2012

I remember back when I was a wee lass, good friends of the family used to give their children Vitamin C tablets at breakfast time. Of course I thought that was amazing and wanted my own mother to let me take Vitamin C tablets. She said no, I should be eating enough fruit and vegetables and not need extra tablets. Well I was so that ended that discussion.

Nowadays you can get more than just the humble Vitamin C orange chewable, vitamins and minerals come in all sorts of tablet types and flavours. Which I think is a good thing if your little one refuses to eat their fruit and vegetables, it may be the only way you can get them to have any sort of goodness.

One important nutrient that I admit I did forget about until recently is Omega-3. If you follow my meal plans you know that we have tuna and fish at least once a week. While tuna may feature at lunchtime as well, fish does not so now I realise that my children may not be getting the Omega-3 they should. Omega-3 is important for brain development and concentration – vital for the school day. Apparently I was not the only mother to have ‘forgotten’ about Omega-3 being such a delight as in a recent survey of mums, 97% of mums were aware that is was important in their child’s diet, yet only 20% of them made sure their children received adequate Omega-3 in their diets!

When Nature’s Own asked me to try out their new range of Omega Delight which is fish oil in liquid form. They promised me that is doesn’t taste like fish oil – rather like a smoothie.

What?! It cannot be, I had to give this a whirl.

I am glad I did.

We have tried it for a few weeks now and I am delighted at the results we have had with it. First off it is true, it tastes like a smoothie and nothing like fish oil so my 7 year old and 2 1/2 year old take it no dramas. Hubby and I have also tried it and I agree, you cannot taste the fish oil and I had no after taste. Hubby said he did a little but it wasn’t fishy at all.

The difference is most apparent in my 7 year old. At this stage I haven’t heard or noticed any improvement in school work but he has always been amazing at this. The best part has been his eczema. Yes true! He usually gets shocking rash behind his knees and elbows and on the front of his feet. Since taking the Omega Delight he has had a huge reduction of rash in these areas. Nothing else has changed that we use like soap and laundry liquid.

I am not sure if it is meant to be a benefit of taking fish oil but I can tell you than now we have tried Omega Delight, we won’t stop taking it.

It is free from lactose, sugar and gluten. It can be taken on its own (which we do) or you can add it to something to make sure they get it.

You can find Omega Delight in Coles and pharmacies and usally retails for around $22 a bottle. Yes a little pricey but I have seen it as low as $14 on special. Plus it is only a teaspoon a dose so it goes a long way.

Thanks to the lovely people at Nature’s Own I have a gift pack of Omega Delight to giveaway! 3 bottles of different flavours can be winging your way to give it a go.

    We had fresh skinless salmon last night, rubbed front and back with rock salt then baked. My daughter doesn’t normally like fish but she actually asked for more!

    When I was living in France it was quite popular to cook sardines on the barbecue. It smells quite strong and many cats used to come around every time we will do a sardines bbq in the summer! It was quite funny and the fish tasted delicious!

    We love out fish grilled on the bbq. Add fresh tarragon as it’s cooking to add a wonderful flavour. Serve with a fresh garden salad.

    Fussy eaters require some imagination. Fish cakes with pureed vegies and pureed tuna or salmon (whichever is on special) thrown in, hidden amongst bread crumbs and cheesy potatoe and cooked til brown. They always ask for seconds!

    Mummy of seven,
    Sumptuous “BBQ Fish Patties” epitomises heaven,
    It’s our favourite delectable dish,
    AND the kids don’t even realise that they’re eating FISH!
    Flat Head, breadcrumbs, egg, parmesan, onion, salt, pepper mixed in a large bowl!
    Then rolled into small balls which the kids love to poke a little finger hole!
    Cook on the BBQ with medium heat,
    It’s a dish that the family think is a scrumptious treat!

    My favourite way to eat fish is baking parmesan cheese, basil and breadcrumbs on top of my choice of fish. Served with green bean lentil salad. So yummy

    I love my fish just grilled, served with steamed vegies. If I am being really creative I might add some seasoning such as lemon pepper or cajun.
