Lately, my little kiddie (shall I call her the child boss of thingsthatwedo.com? ;)) has been really into eating salmon. Ever since dad discovered how to grill it with a little bit of sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder, she will happily eat it once a week. Today, we paired it with some pasta and some green peas and corn both of which were chosen by her.
You see, I’m conflicted by all the news about fish and salmon in particular. The mercury content, the way it’s grown (is it farmed or fresh), and why is it that canned salmon is mostly wild but fresh salmon is usually farmed? What about BPA? Is that inside the canned salmon too? Is there a white lining inside the can? Oh, but wait, what about all the omega 3 that is supposed to be good for my child’s development?
Sigh, as a parent, how can you not be conflicted by all this information. It seems like no matter which way you turn, you’re doomed. Well, what we’ve decided to do is offer salmon no more than once a week, sometimes every 2 weeks and we try the best possible salmon we can. Today, we went to Loblaws and picked up the WiseSource Salmon.
The WiseSource salmon costs significantly more but we only get it for her so to me, it’s worth it. My hope is that it’s a more sustainable and healthier option for her. Here’s a look of what today’s lunch looked like and by the end of it, only a small portion was left!
