In fact, it is a headache for parents to ask children to consume adequate amounts of DHA and EPA in their daily diet.
DHA naturally exists in oil-rich fish such as mackerel and salmon in cold waters. You can also find small amounts of DHA in chicken, eggs, and some children’s formula milk. Omega-3 fatty acids are fat-soluble molecules. DHA that is first emulsified can increase the body's absorption of DHA. The cod liver oil sold in the market has been converted into an emulsion state, and the fish oil is transformed into fine oil and distributed evenly in the formula. These fine fats are similar to fats that our body can decompose naturally, and the nutrients are easier to digest. Therefore, children can also consume cod liver oil to absorb enough DHA.
