Q: “My child has ADHD and sensory sensitivities; getting her to take fish oil supplements has always been a challenge. Can you recommend any strategies or creative methods that can help my child get a healthy dose of omega-3s?”I recommend omega-3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil supplements for almost every child I treat with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), so it’s great that you’re making an effort to add the supplement to your child’s regimen.

I also regularly field questions from parents on this very challenge. Many children dislike the taste of fish oil and/or simply have trouble with a given formulation.

Ultimately, getting your child to take fish oil might be a matter of hiding it in other foods to disguise its taste.No two children have the same sensory needs, so it may take lots of trial and error to find the fish oil supplement that your child will take with little to no issue.
