Salmon in the oven with mediterranean herbs

This fatty fish is far and away the best source of omega-3 fats, which have been shown to improve cognitive function in infants and children. It is very important that we don't get disappointed when our little ones constantly refuse to eat fish. Keep trying. It’s never too late to reap the brain-boosting benefits of a diet high in omega-3s. The Mediterranean culinary herbs used in this recipe, not only increase the nutritional value of the salmon, but also make the intense flavour of this fish milder and therefore easier to be eaten by kids. Try it.
