Fish cake for children (from 3 years)

All mothers love to pamper their kids with baking and pastries. Pediatricians, in turn, are allowed to, reminding them not to get too carried away. And what if sweet cakes and pastries are fed up?

Let’s make a fish pie – it’s delicious, very healthy and sometimes even fast!

The benefits of fish pie for a child

Let’s start with the basics – the test. It can be jellied or puff – it depends on the recipe.

In any case, the dough contains vitamins, micro and macro elements, which are responsible for:

  • improved metabolism;
  • proper functioning of the nervous system;
  • prevention of rickets.

Separately, we note puff pastry – it is high in calories and perfectly energizes, which is very good for an active organism.
Understood the basis, now the juice is the filling. It can be made from fish fillet, or canned fish can be used. Let’s figure it out in order.
If you take fresh fish, try to choose “not bony”, such as pink salmon, hake or taimen.

When cooking, pay special attention to the bones – they must be carefully selected. Or you can simplify the task and immediately buy the fillet – pollock, blue whiting or pangasius – to your taste.

In any fish, a lot of protein, vitamins and minerals that will help:

  • to grow and develop correctly;
  • increase the activity of the cerebral cortex;
  • strengthen the thyroid gland;
  • increase immunity.

Important!  Carefully choose fish – the quality of the dish and the health of the baby depend on this!

A good fish of a uniform color, without an unpleasant odor, and if you press on the fillet – it immediately straightens back.
If there is no desire to mess with raw fish, canned fish is also suitable for a pie.

Here, when choosing, the main thing is to pay attention to the date of final use and see that the jar is not damaged or swollen. Of course, fewer vitamins were preserved in such fish, but the proteins have not disappeared, so that it will not pass through “transit”, and there will be benefits from it.

Recommendations for the preparation and introduction into the diet
  • Puff pastry for the pie can be prepared by yourself, but you can buy it. If you cook yourself – do not forget to stand it for two or three hours in the refrigerator, so it will really be layers in the finished form.
  • It is better to cook a quick-fill fish pie almost immediately before serving – such a pie cannot be stored.
  • It is possible to introduce fish pie into the child’s diet without a twinge – the baby will only be happy with the new type of baking. However, do not forget that any dough is a fat-containing product, carefully monitor the child after the first piece of the pie. And it’s not worth it to abuse the useful properties of baking – everything should be in moderation.
