I dont eat fish, with the exception of the odd fishfinger or fishcake (if you can call them "fish") and on a very rare occasion i'll have a boil in the bag thing. Is this a bad thing to give DD, 7 months? Thought it would fall apart in her mouth so would be easy to eat.

Check the salt content. If it's not too high, then I'd say it's ok once in a while. 7 month old should get less than 1g or salt per day (0.4g sodium, I think).

I wouldn't - the sauce is bound to contain salt, and you could rinse it off but the fish will have absorbed some during cooking.

too much salt at a guess....

The whole thing is 0.41g sodium, but i'm guessing that would mainly be in the sauce, which i'm not planning on actually giving to DD. The only other thing she's had is a slice of milk roll and that's got 0.08g sodium in.

I could always give it to her tomorrow and just give her sweet potato wedges for tea.

If you only want her to have the fish, just drizzle a little olive oil on some cod fillets, cover with foil, bung in the oven and roast them. very easy to do and they will be succulent too.

Can you buy cod fillets without the black skin on them?? I really dont do fish, y'know..... hmm

If you buy it from the fish counter, you can ask the person to take the skin off for you.

You can yes!

Shes not going to eat the whole thing, so no problem. Important not to get hung up on salt content if you don't add it to cooking and only use packaged food once a week, I think.

you can get frozen cod fillets - or any fish for that matter, which is rather economical, then make your own parsley sauce for it...

Thanx everyone, some good ideas there (she had sweet potato in the end). Think i'll look into getting a small piece of skinless and boneless fish for her.
