When it comes to baby led weaning, it’s so important to offer lots of different types of food to your baby so they’re introduced to a wide range of ingredients. Fish is an essential food group to offer your baby, but if you’re not used to cooking with fish it can be difficult to think of what to make. Here you’ll find a collection of our favourite fish recipes for babies that both Dexter and Felix loved during their baby led weaning journeys.
What age should I give my baby fish?
Your baby can eat fish from six months onwards, just as they can with all table foods as part of their baby led weaning journey.
What are the health benefits of feeding your baby fish?
Fish is an excellent source of protein – which is important for your baby’s growth and development, as well as being a good source of Omega-3, a nutrient that will help with brain and eye development as well as protecting their immune system.
Are all types of fish safe for baby?
Not all fish are considered safe for babies, as certain types contain high levels of mercury. Some safe fish choices to offer babies include:
whitefish like cod, pollock, or halibut
canned, light tuna
Always ask your paediatrician or health visitor if you’re unsure about the best sorts of fish to offer your baby.
