Cardiologist (Pediatric) Questions Fish oil

Is fish oil good for my child?

Is it right to start my 6 year old son on fish oil to improve his heart functioning?

I would advise you to speak to your pediatrician about fish oil supplementation. I do not know his past medical history to give you a recommendation. Is he allergic to fish? I would suggest you implement it in his diet. Thank you for your question!
It does not hurt, but proven benefits are not well studied at this age. Maintaining normal weight and exercising daily are better options.
