Hey USANA fans! Have you met the new kid in town? He is one smart fish! Meet the newest addition to the USANA family of products: BiOmega Jr™.
For all the parents who have given up hope of ever being able to get their children to eat even one tiny nibble of a fish stick, never mind a piece of healthy fish like salmon, this product is an orange-pineapple-flavored blessing from heaven!
BiOmega Jr. is a yummy creamy gel that kids love. Each packet is bursting with essential fatty acids EPA and DHA plus vitamin D. And, without a hint of fish flavor, kids actually look forward to eating this good-for-you treat.
And you’ll look forward to giving it to them, because you will know you’re giving your child important nutrients that he or she needs for healthy growth and development.
Smart Nutrients for Growing Bodies
EPA, DHA, and vitamin D are especially important for growing brains and bodies. Why?
- Brain cells are hungry for essential unsaturated fatty acids, which can only come from the diet, in order to keep functioning at their best. Essential fatty acids — especially DHA — also support proper brain development, which may impact mental functions such as memory, learning ability, concentration, behavior, and mood.*
- Low plasma levels of DHA and EPA have been associated with impaired cognitive development in children.*
- Omega-3s support healthy eye development and visual acuity.*
- Vitamin D supports cellular health and calcium absorption to help build strong bones and teeth.*
A Smart Choice for Kids
A 2009 study published in the Journal of Nutrition estimated that nearly 90 percent of children consume less than the 351mg of EPA/DHA per day recommended by American Dietician Association and the Dieticians of Canada. BiOmega Jr. is a smart solution to help your child get some of the essential fatty acids he or she needs, because one-half of a packet (a daily dose for kids 12 and under) delivers 325mg!
BiOmega Jr. is a smart choice for kids for a number of other reasons, too:
- Kids love the creamy “goo” — it tastes great and can be eaten straight from the packet or mixed with cold, creamy foods like yogurt. In our in-house taste test, the orange-pineapple flavor was the most popular!
- The unique delivery system also provides excellent bioavailability.
- The quality of the ingredients. Many children’s products are loaded with corn syrup or sugar. BiOmega Jr. is sweetened with Stevia and natural flavors.
- Did we mention the added vitamin D? It’s not just a little bit, either. Each half-packet supplies 500 IU of vitamin D!
Smart runs in the family. You have BiOmega for you. Now you can get all the perks of fish without the pouts for your kids, too! Give them BiOmega Jr. and you will both be happy you made such a smart choice!
