Steamed White Fish & Veggie Purée

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for growth and development.

The omega-3 fat docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is especially important for.infant brain and eye development.

One important food group which is vital to include in your child’s diet on a daily basis is protein.  Fish is a wonderful source of high-quality protein.  Protein provides the building blocks for the growth and repair of muscles, organs and skin. Babies and toddlers need more protein in their diet than older children and adults.

Peas for Healthy Kids

Green peas are one of the best plant-based sources of protein, which is a major reason why they are so filling, They also contain a high amount of fibre required for healthy digestive function. The protein content found in green peas makes them an excellent food choice for those children who do not like to eat animal products. However, it is important to note that they are not a complete source of protein, since they lack the amino acid methionine. To ensure your child is getting enough of all the essential amino acids in your diet, make sure to pair green peas with another source of protein to make up for the deficit. Consuming a sufficient amount of protein is also important for promoting muscle strength and bone health.
