Your toddler needs lot of fish for brain and nerve development. "First, babies need a lot of the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish for brain, nerve, and eye development, and when they switch from breast milk or formula to solid food," said dietician Susan Brewer. "Second, children`s food preferences are largely developed by the time they`re five, so I urge parents to help their kids develop a taste for seafood early," said Brewer from the University of Illinois College of Agricultural Sciences. Fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, have huge health benefits and help to prevent coronary artery disease, but most adults don`t eat fish twice weekly as experts recommend, reports the Journal of Food Science . "Fish-based baby foods, common in Asian markets, have been marketed successfully in the United Kingdom and Italy," Brewer said, according to a University of Illinois statement. Brewer collaborated with former University of Illinois professor Peter Bechtel, now of Alaska`s Agricultural Research Service, in the effort to create a viable product, using salmon. She has experimented with both pink and red salmon, finding that red salmon survives the baby food production process better.
