Cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, and herring are the best source of omega-3s (Japan's seafood-rich diet has been linked to that nation's life expectancy, among the world's highest at 82.5 years). In addition, "consuming EFAs may help prevent disorders like ADHD in kids and Alzheimer's in adults," says nutritionist Keri Glassman, who has created a nutrition snack bar for kids that contains omega-3s from flaxseed.
