Also, some children with ASDs react badly to those supplements mixed with Evening Primrose Oil, which can make autistic behaviours more prominent, so they'd need to be clear about other ingredients. I can't see how they can apply this without an element of parental choice and consent.

- do I want the Gov insisting my children take fish oils, even if they don't need it (one of my son's does, but the other two don't)
- if the Gov provide the fish oils, how will we know if they are of good quality/not contaminated (they are bound to go for the cheapest version!)
- how will they make the children take it, if they refuse?

I have been recommended (by a Nutritionist specialising in ASD) to try Arctic Cod Liver Oil for my other son who has severe language difficulties. Supposedly, it helps with language and visual problems. We are trying this now and it has not had any bad effects so far - probably too early to comment on success).
Did I also read somewhere that Omegas are supposed to help with depression, or was I dreaming ?
Perhaps they should offer it to parents of ASD children having to go to totally unsupportive mainstream schools. Bucketload for me please !
Personally, I would be happy to have my children given Omega's at school, but I would also wish to have the right to withdraw my children from the scheme at any time, if I felt it wasnt right for my children.

Yum Yum yes please for the smoked salmon sarnie, preferably with a glass of champagne too. I posted a reply before, but I have to say these Omega supplements are fairly vile to take, rather like swigging the juice from the bottom of a tin of sardines or tuna. YUK. The sarnies sound much better.

I have no objections to kids being given supplements at school, but parents should be the ones to say if it's ok or not.
I just wish the government would provide sun cream on the NHS. I see so many babies getting redder and redder. Surly in the long term that would be more helpful to less well off families.
