As a Registered Dietitian, I know full and well all the benefits of eating salmon. But do you think it’s a regular on our Meal Plan Master List?
Nope. Ed and I both love salmon—so the problem doesn’t lie with us. You guessed it. We’ve got the same problem you likely do. We have kids. Kids can be less than open-minded about some foods. One of those foods—so far—has been salmon.
So I’ve been experimenting with ways to get salmon onto our family table. A couple of months ago I had some success with a Salmon Cakes recipe from this wonderful family cookbook, Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide: Feed Your Family. Save Your Sanity, from Sally at Real Mom Nutrition. One kid liked them fine, and the other took a couple of nibbles. That’s success! With a few tweaks to the recipe, I think I can get our reluctant eater on board.
