Are There Fish Oil Benefits for Children?

Fish oil is safe for children when consumed in normal food amounts from fish. However, some fish (and, therefore, some supplements) are contaminated with heavy metals and other toxins, which may be especially dangerous for children. As mentioned, you should not give your child fish oil supplements without the approval of your child's healthcare provider.
