We get asked all the time “how do I get my kids to take fermented cod liver oil?”

Knowing that cod liver oil contains vitamin D that strengthen teeth and bones is one thing, but getting your 3 year old to take it is another. Time to get creative! Below you will find some ideas, along with links to recipes, for how to get the cod liver oil to taste better, and make it easier to swallow.

  1. Give it flavor! What about adding a hint of licorice, ginger, or lemon?
  2. Mix it into a smoothie.
  3. Add it to a tangy juice or kombucha.
  4. Try adding it to yogurt, raw cream, raw honey, maple syrup, apple sauce, or even peanut butter.
