Can I give cod liver oil to my 14-month-old son?
Q: Can we give cod liver oil to our 14-month-old son? If so, what should be quantity we should give him?
A:You have not mentioned if you are a vegetarian or not. If you have non-vegetarian food, it will be better to give your child a little steamed fish twice a week - 50 g (for maximum benefits) than putting him on cod liver oil supplements. Supplementation for children under the age of four years should proceed only with the recommendation of your medical practitioner.
