We started giving salmon to both Kenya and Chloe when they were just over 9 months old and they each immediately took a major liking to it. I'm a big salmon fan and always enjoy trying to come up with new and interesting ways to prepare this versatile fish. These salmon bites are delicious and beyond simple to prepare.
Salmon is an important food for children because it's rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for brain development. Since your body can’t make Omega 3's you have to get them through food, but there isn't a wide variety of foods that provide Omega vitamins, so salmon is a perfect choice. For kids who might be a little daunted by having a big piece of fish put in front of them or who simply prefer bite size foods, this recipe is a great alternative to every day chicken nuggets. These bites are extra fun for kids to eat because they can just pop them in their mouths bite after bite. The addition of the avocado dipping sauce adds to the appeal by making meal time a fun activity for kids (and the green color is totally novel for little ones too). I guarantee your whole family will be eating up what will soon become one of your new go-to recipes!

1/4 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (I like to use 0 or 2% greek yogurt because it's thick and creamy)
