NutraSea Kids Omega 3 Supplement Review

In recent years, more and more research has shown the importance of essential fatty acids in our diets and the large role it plays in our children’s development.  It has been said that children should eat fish 2-3 times a week, however actually making that happen seems next to impossible!  I may be able to fit in a salmon dinner once a week, however anything beyond that is just not feasible and I would be considered lucky if they actually ate it!

Ascenta has recently introduced and alternative for parents who’s children aren’t so “fish friendly”, called NutraSea Kids.  This supplement allows parents to provide their kids with Essential Fatty Acids (just 1 teaspoon a day) that the kids will actually take with it’s “Very Berry” taste.    NutraSea Kids took into account that many children have difficulty swallowing soft gels and capsules, so they created a kids supplement in a liquid format that makes it easy for children to take and it can even be added to milkshakes, yogurt, smoothies and other favorite foods.

Every NutraSea product undergoes rigorous testing to ensure purity and quality so that you can rest assured that your adding a safe supplement to your child’s diet.  In fact, it’s this rigorous form of testing that sets Ascenta apart from it’s competitors.  NutraSea Kids is recommended for children aged 2-13 and if any of your children have fish allergies you should consult your doctor before using NutraSea.

My Thoughts
We were sent a bottle of NutraSea Kids, as well as NutraSea +D for myself. I do like that supplements are available now, offering an alternative to eating fish 3 time a week! I think even I would lose it if I had to eat fish that often! The kids were more than happy taking a teaspoon of the NutraSea Kids with it’s very berry flavor and even I thought it was tolerable, but certainly oily. The following day I decided to take out the NutraSea +D and give it a little test drive and I have to say that it was less than desirable. It was oily and didn’t have much of a taste, I think I would have preferred taking the NutraSea Kids. Overall, I would definitely recommend the NutraSea Kids, however I will not be taking anymore of the NutraSea +D. It is important to note that I do not take supplements often and your experience may differ from mine.

Disclaimer: I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of NutraSea Kids campaign and received NutraSea samples to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

Bloggy Birthday Bash Giveaway #10: Flip Slide HD Camcorder!

Although I’m sad to see this year’s Bloggy Birthday Bash come to a close, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to give one very lucky “Deal”ectible Mommies reader a Flip Slide HD Camcorder! The Flip SlideHD is an all new Flip, with an all new form factor, designed to make it even more fun to capture, watch and share High-definition videos anytime, anywhere!

Flip SlideHD
The Flip SlideHD is the first Flip Video camera that lets consumers shoot up to four hours of HD video or store up to 12 hours of videos, photos, and content from Flip channels™. SlideHD is also the first Flip to enable real-time video sharing on a stunning 3-inch widescreen with a unique slide-up design. SlideHD’s simple touch screen and innovative slide strip make it easy and fun to quickly navigate through your library to locate a video or photo.


– Holds up to 4 hours of HD-quality video on 16GB of built-in memory or up to 12 hours of video in Space Saver format using the included FlipShare software.
– 3″ touch screen
– Slides out to share your favorite viewos instantly.
– Convenient flip-out USB arm
– Plugs directly into your computer to launch built-in FlipShare software.
– Built-in FlipShare software
– Lets you save and organize your videos, edit individual clips, make custom movies, e-mail your videos, and upload them directly to YouTube, MySpace and AOL Video.
– Share videos privately using FlipShare’s attachment-free email or by creating Flip Channels.
– Watch videos instantly on TV
– Mini HDMI output for simple connection to your HDTV using an HDMI cable (not included).
– Plug in headphones to enjoy your videos in any setting (headphones not included).
– Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
– Charges via USB 2.0 connection or optional Flip power adapter (not included).
– Captures HD 720p H.264 video at 1280 x 720 at 30 frames per second (16:9 widescreen) in MP4 format for video you’ll be able to enjoy on your HDTV.
– Compatible with Windows Media Player, QuickTime and iTunes.
– Ultra-low light sensitivity with automatic low-light detection along with automatic white balance and black level calibration for capturing footage in a variety of lighting conditions.

Built-in Software
Want to email a video to grandma and grandpa? No problem! Like all Flip models, the SlideHD is pre-loaded with the proprietary FlipShare software that allows consumers to easily organize, create and share their videos. Using a PC or Mac, Flip video content can be instantly uploaded, both privately and publicly, and is instantly ready for one-click sharing. From social media sites such as Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, to email, mobile devices, Flip Channels, and the TV, FlipShare is the easiest solution for consumers who want to share their videos.

Touch Screen
The unique nature of the Flip SlideHD is that it allows users to use touch screen technology to record and navigate through the on screen menus. There is also a manual control (not on the screen) that is that allows you to navigate through the menu with touch.

I love this feature! When you visit the Flip Video website, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from thousands of designs from artists, leading design firms, celebrities, and iconic brands, or easily upload your own image to create a one-of-a-kind camcorder. How cool is that?

My Thoughts
We have been using the Flip Slide HD for a few weeks now and I think it’s nearly impossible to beat how user friendly this unit is. Simply turn it on, press one button and your instantly recording! The amazing feature of the Flip SlideHD is that once your done shooting your video, you can simply flip up the 3-inch widescreen and share your video instantly! We found this feature to be rather lovely when it came time to entertain the kids for a few moments!

The touch screen was a little less impressive and although it worked ok to navigate through the menu’s, at times I found that we had to press rather hard or multiple times for it to respond.  However, I will say that the touch screen record button worked fabulous!  There is a bar located under the flip up screen that you can also use to navigate through the menus, rather than using the touch screen, and I find myself using that more often.  The quality of the videos are truly amazing and I have a tendency to reach for this camcorder first because of it’s ease of use.

I also love the convenience that Flip camcorders offer.  I can grab it, throw it in my person and be on my way.  I don’t have to worry about loading my camcorder into a bag and toting along with us when we head out for vacation or a school play.  Overall, we absolutely LOVE the Flip Slide HD and we think you will too!

Buy It!
SlideHD retails for $279.99 and can be purchased at major retailers, online retailers and at the Flip store.
