I remember as a child being given it, and hating the taste 😝 but seriously I know you can now buy cod liver oil capsules and it is highly recommended as being beneficial. Good luck!

when the war ended all children were made to take cod liver it certainly can't do you any harm!!!! :)

These comments are bringing back childhood memories. I was given cod liver oil too and my mum and dad tied some cotton round the spoon so they wouldn't use it for stirring their cup of tea. I can still remember the taste and it makes me shudder.

I think your best bet is to try it and see whether it helps and be thankful that it comes in capsules now. :)

I have been taking cod liver oil capsules for years now since I was diagonised June 2013 I haven't had a chest infection don't know if they help my knees still creak Marian xx
