Kid's vegan DHA supplement

I have not been able to find a vegan, fish oil free, children's DHA and EPA supplement. My ex is threatening to take our children off a vegan diet if I cannot find one. The children's chewables that I found are fish, not microalgae based. The liquid drops taste nasty.

I am not an expert but pretty sure DHA is DHA. A kiddy version may have slightly less but I cannot imagine the difference would be so huge that it would cause any issues(especially since it's naturally in sea food). I assume you are able to find vegan DHA for adults?

Unfortunately I don't know a lot about the subject.....not because I've never tried to look it up but because as far as I know, nobody knows how much we need or even if we need any at all.

Also I just want to mention this.....if you do get fish oil ones it may be a better alternative to a fully omni diet. Something for you to think about at least.

Is this the one that tastes bad? You could maybe sneak it in juice or a smoothie?

Sorry so giant a pic! Amazon has it

You think that's a big pic? Check out the Silk I posted on the other thread!

I've had ovega-3, and two other vegan dha capsules. Ovega and the one other that sounds like ovega were fine,the third one gave me sea burps like crazy! DOn't know what the difference was, but I wouldn't want to taste that straight up!
I wonder if maybe adding drops to something like chickpea salad?
