omega3 kids + D3
NEW! Balance your child’s omega-3s
A clean source of their daily EPA and DHA—plus vitamin D3 and lutein for protection from blue light!
Balance your child’s omega-3s with omega3+ kids+D3 with added lutein!
Research shows that EPA and DHA, two key omega-3 essential fatty acids, are essential for behaviour and mental outlook in children, and vitamin D3 helps to support cognitive health and the maintenance of bones and teeth. Yet children are not meeting recommendations:
- Not enough omega-3 fatty acids: Children have been shown to have lower levels of EPA and DHA than adults, and up to 84% of children consume less than one serving of fish/seafood per week
- Not enough vitamin D: Canadian children are at risk of not meeting population targets for vitamin D
- Too much screen time: Children up to the age of 8 spend more than 2 hours of screen time each day
omega3 kids+D3 was made to deliver these nutrients that are critical to your child’s development:
“I’m so proud to be partnering with Genuine Health to bring you the best quality natural health supplements to help your children truly thrive! Based on the latest research, you can feel good knowing you’re giving your child products that are free from GMOs and artificial flavouring and full of wholesome, nourishing ingredients designed with your child’s resiliency in mind.”

Quality & Testing
When it comes to fish oils, quality, purity and sustainability is important. Our Omega-3 Superior Quality 5 Point Program certifies our commitment to you: quality Omega-3 fish oils that are rigorously tested to ensure that they exceed quality, freshness and purity standards, while offering high potency EPA and DHA.
Sustainable & traceable sources: We source our omega-3 fish oils from wild-caught fish and sustainable fisheries that are strictly regulated by government agencies. These fisheries protect biodiversity, are environmentally responsible, and globally ranked #1 for sustainability. The waters in which the fish are harvested are closely monitored to assess biomass and to avoid the degradation of all marine species, including plankton, seabirds and sea lions. We also maintain full control of our fish oil supply chain: from harvest to manufacturing there is full visibility will all stages of production. Each and every batch can be traced back to the catch!
fresh technology™: Our omega-3 fish oils are processed using the most advanced technologies, resulting in the cleanest, purest and freshest fish oils available today – with optimal absorption and no fishy repeat or odour. Specific handling and storage procedures are monitored to protect the integrity of these specialized oils.

No! The red colour is from the addition of lutein.
The evidence on DHA vs. EPA for children is not as clear cut as most think. Overwhelmingly the research suggests that a balance of DHA and EPA is necessary for optimal health in children. In some cases like ADHD, EPA has shown to be more effective than DHA at improving symptoms. Overall, the omega3 kids +D3 formula is very consistent with those used in the majority of clinical trials, and Genuine Health has ensured that we deliver a clinically significant dose of both EPA and DHA. Even looking only at the “high DHA” studies, many of them use treatments ~400mg DHA, about the same amount found in omega3 kids +D3. Based off the totality of current literature, we believe this formula is optimally balanced to promote all areas of childhood development.
All omega-3 fatty acids in omega3 kids +D3 are DHA & EPA.
Vitamin D is sourced from lanolin (sheep wool), suspended in a coconut oil MCT matrix.
