Q.

Cod liver oil &  Malt

Hi,
I have heard that Cod liver oil &  Malt is great for children in the winter months to help with the colds and flu... can you please tell me whether I can give this to my girls, and if so how much. My eldest is nearly 3, and baby is nearly 6 months.
Thanks

You can certainly give malt and cod liver oil to your 3 year old, but not to your baby of 6 months.
