By now you know I’m not a big fan of serving anything out of a can, but tuna fish really is a mother’s savior when you need some quick and easy protein for your little one. Being pregnant again the past months, I’ve done a ton of research on fish that are low in mercury. Surprisingly, canned tuna is a good choice.

This tuna, apple, raisin salad is a perfect filling for pitas because unlike most tuna salad recipes, it won’t get soggy sitting in a sandwich bag for lunch. It’s sweet, gets an added little crunch from the celery and a bit of zip from the lemon juice. It’s also a great recipe when you’re on a budget. This cost me less than $2 for two kids servings (and a few bites for myself!).
