Which foods contain Omega-3 and Omega-6?

Think Omega-3, think oily fish, like tuna, mackerel, salmon and sardines. Vegetable oils, such as flaxseed and canola, also provide healthy amounts of the good stuff.

Like Omega-3, Omega-6 is also found in certain vegetable oils, in this case, soybean and sunflower (among others) and while these are useful in small quantities, they also feature heavily in a lot of processed foods.

Ensuring your child has a well-balanced diet is a simple way you can manage intake and make sure they’re getting all the good stuff, too.
