Try to include 2 portions of oily fish a week such as salmon into your child's diet - they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which is vital for brain health.
In our house we love serving this up in mini ramekins dishes so the kids can have their own portions. Make this fish pie recipe and I guarantee your little ones will enjoy them!
