Salmon

If salmon isn’t a food you would think to serve to your child, then you might want to reconsider this pink fish. Wild salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein which children need for proper growth as well as those Omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for brain development and heart health. Another plus for busy parents, salmon requires little seasoning due to natural flavor and can be baked or grilled in just a few minutes. If mercury levels have you worried, then take note of the fact that salmon is consistently rated by the FDA as one of the five fish lowest in mercury. Try one of these kid-friendly salmon recipes tonight: Salmon Burgers or Roasted Salmon with Citrus and Herbs.
