        Comments about Spectrum Essentials Children's DHA, Chewable, Strawberry Banana, 90 ea:

        I bought these for my kids because we ran out of the gummy DHA vitamins I had. When I first opened the bottle, I found gel pills of the sort that adults would swallow. I was shocked given that these are for kids. I read the bottle again and saw that they were meant to be chewed. My kids and I tried them and we all had the same reaction: "UCK!" -- you bite into it and squirts oil in your mouth and then you chew the very gummy gel coating and it's just, in a word, gross. I find it impossible to believe that these were truly meant to be chewed.

        Also, the pills must be refrigerated after opening. I found that a bit odd. I won't be buying these again.

          I've tried various gummy omega supplements and my daughter would spit them out but she loves these! I find they taste pretty gross but she eats them. Maybe its the flavor or maybe the way the soft gets "pop" in your mouth-either way she gets excited every day for them.

            My very picky 2 year old loves these! So much in fact that we sometimes bribe her with them to finish dinner. She loves these balls. We tried others - gummies and the (very horrible) Spectrum no-fish DHA oil to name a few - only these work for our picky little one. Just wish they didn't have gelatin (otherwise would be 4 stars)... Good luck!

              I can't stand it when people say, "you can only get DHA from fish." Because duh... where do the fish get it from? Microalgae. Go right to the source.

              Personally, I wouldn't take these in a million years. They stink like fish! I can sometimes even smell it on my daughter after she takes them. But who cares, because the important thing is that SHE TAKES THEM. She likes them.

              Cons

              Comments about Spectrum Essentials Children's DHA, Chewable, Strawberry Banana, 90 ea:

              My daughter is very sensitive to scents and flavors. I was afraid to buy her anything with fish oil because I am certain she will complain whether or not it is supposed to have a fishy flavor. These were rather expensive but I thought it was worth the expense if she would take them. She cried and gagged and complained until she finally learned to swallow them. The gel itself has a strawberry banana flavor but the oil is regular flax oil and has a strong flavor. I tried to squeeze the oil out and had a little success, but really these are best for kids who can swallow them. The flavor of the gel is helpful when swallowing pills is something that still takes a lot of effort.

              My son is a lacto-vegetarian, primarily although he will eat eggs too. However, he does not like vegetables or flax so this is a great way to get him the essential fatty acids that he needs.

                I bought this product as a Post - Gastric Bypass patient, looking for a more pleasant experience than flax seed oil by the regular "out of the bottle" method. I THOUGHT this was a flavored something kids would like. NOT !!! it was just a small (as in mega tiny) soft gel, that when I bit into it Finally exploded with ... FLAX OIL -- NO altered taste, nothing good about it. I could have gotten Many many more oz. of flaxseed oil without all this soft gels that do nothing. Think of this as just a small soft gel of flax seed, nothing more. DON"T BUY IT !!

                  I have one picky eater and 3 not so picky eaters, when I saw this I had to try it. No fish taste DHA great. The two oldest kids take it just like a pill, the youngest will chew it without enjoyment. They are not sure what to think of it. They do chew one and thats enough for them. I'm just happy to get a little clean DHA in their bodies. A great supplement if you have kids that will only eat certain foods. I've also broken open the softgels and put them in food.
