Many parents find it a challenge to introduce fish to their kids’ diet. If your kid looks forward to fish at meal times, you really deserve a pat on the back! I have come to realise that in many instances, texture, rather than taste, has a huge impact on whether a child likes a particular food or not. As an example, Amber isn’t a big fan of fish when I cook it in porridge, or mix it with rice. Why? Because there are no contrasting textures for her – everything is mushed together!
My family loves salmon, cbb included! I’ve recently introduced salmon to her diet, and boy does she love it! When preparing food for cbb, I always have a liquid/watery base like pumpkin/carrot/sweetcorn/cauliflower/potato puree (the possibilities are endless), a carb and a protein (like chicken or fish) and chopped vegetables that I make more lumpy to add to the base. There’s no hard and fast rule and I realise I love preparing meals like these for cbb as compared to boring mashes of single-type food when she just started solids.
