I’m always on the look out for ways to add new things to Aidan’s diet. I like knowing that he is eating healthy and getting some variety in his diet. Sometimes I even will think to myself “Gosh, if I ate like Aidan maybe I wouldn’t have to work out so hard to lose weight!” because he seriously eats pretty clean. Outside of his addiction to animal crackers; he could probably eat a Costco-sized tub of them and still want more.
I modified a recipe that I found in a toddler book because of my (again) bad habit of not fully reading the recipe. Sometimes that does really work in my favor though, and I’m glad this was one of those lucky occasions. He loves these little fish sticks, and I’m happy because he some tuna mixed into his diet – we really should feed him more fish.
Healthy Toddler Fish Sticks
- 2 peeled and boiled large russet potatoes
- 1 can low-sodium tuna
- 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
Boil potatoes until soft and mashable. Mash the potatoes and tuna together in bowl. Form into finger-length “sticks” and roll in the bread crumbs to coat. Place on a greased baking sheet and back at 350 for 10-15 minutes. If freezing, freeze individually on a cooled baking sheet or platter, and then transfer to a zip-lock bag afterward. Serve warm.
