My child will not take the fish oil, can I give flax or flax oil which are also high in omega-3 fatty acids instead?

The essential omega-3 fatty acid for brain recovery is DHA and that is found only in the highest concentration in fish. Flax or flax oil do not contain DHA, they contain a different omega-3 called ALA. ALA does not have the same beneficial effect of DHA. Try adding the fish oil to orange juice or lemonade to see if that helps mask the flavor. Alternatively you could try switching to the fish oil capsules or fish oil gummies.
