    A colourful, bright and sneeky way of introducing a variety of different vegetables and protein into your childs diet. The Salmon gives that all important one portion of omega-3 they need. Not enough fish is served to children at an early age which in turn gives them a fear of fish in their later years. This recipe I believe is a great introduction to a different kind of fish other than cod or haddock Although no peanuts are used in this recipe the Pesto does contain "Pine Nuts"
