Do your kids only eat fish that’s rectangular in shape and coated in manufactured breading? Many of us rely on conveniently packaged fish sticks to provide our families with the recommended two or three servings of fish a week. While fish sticks are a great source of protein, they are also high in fat, salt and sugar. Also, most packaged fish sticks use cod or Pollack, which are low in healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon and tuna are an important part of brain function. Omega 3 (specifically DHA) is found in high concentrations in brain tissue where it supports optimal brain functioning–crucial for early development.
For a healthier approach to fish, try some of these Omega-3-rich, simple and healthy fish recipes your family will love.
