(Note: I bought the adult version as well.) Got this for it's health benefits...which is hard to know for sure if it's working. It's supposed to help with heart issues, like cholesterol and such, which run rampant in my family; as well as helping with ADD symptoms, eczema & keratosis pilaris (those little bumps some folks get on their arms, face & behind, etc.). However, I can tell you about the obvious thing: taste. It does have a lemony smell & a slight lemony taste. While the taste is fine, it's thick oiliness was NOT popular with my 4 kids (nor me). So what I do each day is pour the dose into a medicine cup, then fill the rest of the way with any tasty drink. They all take it fine then. I've added it to OJ, apple juice, grape juice & even kool-aid. I myself take the adult version, so I can vouch for the taste, too. One note: I can find NO difference in the kids' version & the adult, except that the kid's dosage is not listed on the adult bottle. The ingredient/mineral/vitamin quantity is exactly the same per tsp in both versions. Save yourself the money if you plan to take the oil too, and just buy one bottle of whichever one's on sale/cheapest. Kids ages 2-4 take 1/4tsp, 5-12 takes 1/2 tsp, 12+ takes 1 tsp (all after meal).
