Brain Food From The Waters




Protein-rich Fish Recipes for Babies 7 Months Up


Fish contains protein, calcium, selenium and B vitamins all necessary for developing a healthy nervous system. Fish is one of the few food sources offering complete protein or all of the 9 amino acids. White fish (e.g. cod, threadfin, haddock etc) is preferred over others at the early stages because it is easily digested and 'tolerable' in terms of taste. Fish also has an edge over other meat forms because it is an excellent source of omega 3s. This is why fish has gained the reputation of being the brain food from the waters.



Fish and spinach porridge

A few tablespoons white rice/brown rice

Fresh white fish (Haddock, cod or any other variety)

Spinach leaves

1. Wash rice and drain. Bring some water to boil in a pan, add the rice and cook over low flame. Let it simmer for ½ an hour. Stir frequently to prevent porridge from burning.

2. Debone the fish and make small slices. Wash spinach and chop into small pieces.

3. In the last five minutes before porridge is ready, add the fish and spinach. Remove porridge from stove when the fish and vegetable are cooked (both don't take long to cook). Mix well and dish out into baby's bowl. Allow the porridge to cool slightly before serving to your baby.
