Is it teething time for your little one?

 

Listen, we all know how tricky it can be to feed your little ones - especially when you're desperately trying to pack in as many delicious nutrients as possible. 

 

But one fail-safe, that is also a great source of goodness, is fish - in all shapes and sizes. 

 

Whether its grilled salmon or fish fingers, your little ones will seriously benefit from some yummy fish a few times a week. 

 

 

Just check out these awesome benefits:

 

1. Protein Punch

 

Fish is one of the BEST sources of protein out there, which is so important for any growing child.

 

2. Better vision

 

People who eat more fish have a much lower risk of developing macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision impairment and blindness.

 

3. Omega-3 is the KEY

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are absolutely essential for growth and development in kiddos - and fish is a fantastic source.

4. Sleep like a baby

 

There is preliminary evidence that eating fatty fish like salmon may lead to improved sleep. Yes, please! 

 

5. Heart Health

 

Fish is actually considered to be one of the best foods a child can eat to maintain a healthy heart. 

 

 

6. Vitamin D

 

Fish is one of the best dietary sources of vitamin D, which in our climate, is something worth noting. 

 

7. Keeps you smiling

 

As we said, fish is a brilliant source of Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can, quite literally, make you a happier person and improve your quality of life.

8. Healthy immune system 

 

Eating fish has been linked to reduced risk of type 1 diabetes and several other autoimmune diseases. 

 

9. Brainiacs

 

A number of observational studies have shown that people who eat more fish have slower rates of cognitive decline as they get older. 

 

10. Reduces chances of asthma 

 

Some studies show that children who eat more fish have a lower risk of developing asthma.

 

My kids love fish fingers best, but there are lots of ways to serve fish to help your kids get the healthiest diet from a young age. Good luck, mamas!
