I was really excited to get his fish oil. I had read great reviews about using it for children with Autism. I have a five year old with Autism, and none of the fish oil we tried had worked for him. When I opened the bottle, the little fish looked cute. It's sort of like a capsule. It's purple and shaped like a fish. The capsule felt a little tough, so I read the box to make sure it was chewable. The box said the fish were edible, but they preferred that the child bite the fish and suck the fish oil out of it. I tried one of them before I gave it to my son. These things are not edible. It was nearly impossible to chew them, and it was absolutely impossible to chew it enough to swallow. That wouldn't of been a deal breaker, but the taste of the oil was horrible. It was really slimy also. I knew my son wouldn't go for it, but I tried it anyway. I explained to him that he just needed to chew it. He bit down on it, and all the fish oil shot out of it and onto the floor. These fish oils were not designed well.
