When to introduce: 10-12 months (check with your pediatrician) *

Stars: Fish contain all 9 amino acids - this means that fish is one of the few sources of complete protein. Our bodies do not make amino acids, we must get them from the foods we eat. Fish are amazing sources of pure Omega 3s not to mention all sorts of wonderfully healthy nutrients that growing babies need. The Omega 3's in fish are powerful indeed and may even help little one's who have eczema or other skin ailments.

Ingredients:
1 lb. filet of any fresh, white fish (we like cod)
1 cup steamed carrots
1/2 cup apricots, pitted
1/4 cup milk (breast milk, whole milk, coconut milk) 

* A Note About Fish: Recommendations on when to introduce fish are always changing. We recommend reading this article and always checking with your pediatrician before introducing new foods to your little one. Always choose fresh fish. Flounder, Haddock, Cod, and Sole are considered the safest choices. 

Directions:
1. Poach fish by bringing one cup of water to a simmer in a small frying pan. Add the fish, cover and cook until fish is completely white. Be sure to check fish thoroughly for bones. 
2. Break fish into pieces and combine with carrots, apricots and milk in a blender.
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Add to pouches and enjoy!

Servings: Fills about 4 Pouches
