I can’t speak to effectiveness vs. other fish oils or meds, etc., but if getting your child to take it at all is an issue, try Barlean’s Omega Swirl Fish Oil. It truly tastes like a smoothie. Available in Kids and Adult formulas, it comes in different flavors like Lemonade, Key Lime, and more. It does need to be refrigerated. The Kids version has EPA/DHA 360 per teaspoon, not sure of adult dose but you can check it out at barleans.com. I bought it at a local health food store. Best of luck!
