Twinlab® Marine Friends Children's Omega-3 Powder: Review

Monday, November 08, 2010 Posted by Dina N

As a mom, I try to make sure that my kids are getting all the nutrition they need. Usually that comes from healthy foods but sometimes I feel we need to supplement what they get via meals.

Twinlab® Marine Friends™ Children’s Omega-3 Powder is a powder in single-serve stick packs. It is intended to blend into food and drinks. The supplement contains a naturally sourced combination of DHA and EPA that is molecularly distilled for purity and provides 127mg of Omega-3s per serving. There are no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or sweeteners added. There are 30 sticks in a box.

I think it is a great idea - however, my little testers disliked the taste, and I had the hardest time trying to mask it in food or drink. While an adult can easily bypass the taste and focus on the health benefits, that's much harder to accomplish with kids. It did not dissolve well, and left a fishy aftertaste. Well - it is derived from tuna, after all. I applaud the Twinlab's attempt to help children's nutrition. Kudos also for the smart packaging - there are cute sea creatures on the box and on the stick packs - although it is probably unnecessary if parents are going to disguise the supplement in food or beverages. More useful than the pictures would have been being able to open the stick packs without getting the scissors.

Bottom line is - I recommend it for adults. Just make it more concentrated and market it accordingly. Cute sea creatures - not needed.

    Hello, I am doing this review also and googled to see what others thought of it. Oh boy, the kids hated it, and so I tried it and was disgusted also and tossed it out. It smelled and tasted fishy! Who would make something like that taste so bad. I wonder if they have tried it on their kids?? lol
