Somthing Fishy: Broccoli, Potatos and Salmon

Today Megha had salmon (de-boned fish). She has had cod before but very little. Since salmon has relatively low mercury content, I chose this for her. I cannot say she loved it, she was ok with it.Check with the doctor before introducing fish. She is 12 months when I first gave her fish.

Salmon is one of the foods which has high iron content. To help absorb iron better, we need to club it with Vitamin C; Broccoli is perfect for this!!

Broccoli: 1 cup, shredded
Potato: 1, peeled and chopped
Salmon: 3 ounces, cut into pieces
Mozzarella cheese: 1/8 cup
whole milk: 1/2 cup
salt and pepper to taste

Place broccoli and potato in a sauce pan and layer salmon on top. pour in the milk and cook in medium flame until the veggies are tender; about 20 minutes. Switch off the stove.
Add salt, pepper and cheese and puree until you reach desired consistancy.

Do not place lid while cooking. Else, milk will boil over.
Introduce white cheeses to baby before colored ones like Cheddar.
