Barlean’s Omega Pals product line has been awarded the 2018 NEXTY “Best New Natural Kid’s Product” award during the Natural Products Expo East this month.

Barlean’s Omega Pals product line is aimed at helping children as young as one-year-old obtain Omega-3 nutrition critical for brain and eye development according to a company announcement.

All Omega Pals products are emulsified for superior absorption, are sugar free, and have a creamy liquid texture and sweet fruity taste even picky kids love. Omega Pals Hooty Fruity Tangerine also includes an ingredient shown to help protect eyes from harmful blue light, an issue of increasing concern to parents with the rapid rise in use of electronic devices by children. Laboratory studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina, causing eye strain and increasing the risk for macular degeneration.

NEXTY winners are determined in a two-round judging process that takes place in the Boulder-based New Hope Network office in the weeks prior to Expo East. All nominated products are considered and extra points are given for innovation, inspiration and integrity.
