Supplements to help your child's mood swings

It's been another rollercoaster of a year. But, can you believe that we are slowly approaching the finish line of the school year? Children are particularly flooded this time of year - emotionally, mentally, and physically. And chances are you've seen this reflected in their moods. They might be more sensitive and become more easily upset than usual.

One of the basic rules for a healthy mind and balanced mood starts with the nutrients we consume. And nothing has proven as essential as Omega-3 fats. Foods rich in Omega-3 fats include fatty fish, such as tuna and sardines, and a variety of nuts and seeds. These nutrients improve memory function, promotes better sleep, and calm a busy mind.

A natural way of improving your child's working memory includes fish and fish oil supplements in their diet. Fish and fish oil supplements are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. However, children can be picky eaters. That's where Melotone Junior Chewable Omega Capsules come in handy. These chewable capsules contain all the health benefits of fish and fish oil, taste good, and are easy to consume.
