Why is salmon so important in your baby’s diet?

Oily fish such as salmon is the best source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids for your growing baby.

These fatty acids are ‘essential’ as they help the development of your child’s vision, nervous system, as well as brain growth and development.

Plus, they help to reduce inflammation and enhance the function of their immune cells.

Try out this superfood with the salmon recipes below!

Salmon can be given from 6 months once those first tastes have been given

Aim for 2 servings of oily fish twice a week (but no more due to pollutants found in oily fish which may build up in the body).

There are no set portion size guidelines for a baby under 1 year but for a toddler aged 1-4 years roughly aim for a 40g portion.

Tinned salmon is also a good source of calcium (because of the bones). Just ensure they are completely grounded/blended for your baby before serving.
