Proof that toddlers will try unknown foods, and maybe even like them:

Today my 17 month old ate sardines on whole grain bread, with a side of sauteed mustard greens and steamed carrots for lunch.  I can hardly believe it myself- even I won’t eat sardines, though they are one of the healthiest fish options out there.   With his first bite he said “mmmmmmmmm,” happily chewed and swallowed, then kept opening his mouth for more.

Try giving sardines to your child.   I dare you!  They are packed with vitamin D, omega 3 fats, protein, calcium, selenium, and vitamin B12.

Even though I don’t eat them, it made me feel really good seeing him consume all of that powerful nutrition.
