Salmon and cream cheese sandwiches are a great healthy lunch option for grown up diners and little ones alike. Younger children might not be so keen on the green leaves, but let them have a play or try shredding them and mixing them in to disguse their texture. Once they're familiar with the ingredients, they're more likely to tuck in.
- 2 slices of fresh bread
- 1/3 fillet of cooked salmon
- A couple of spoonfuls of cream cheese
- A handful of seasonal leaves
Smoked foods are not suitable for young babies but you can either buy the salmon ready cooked, or bake a fillet of salmon in foil for about 20 minutes in a warm oven. This will then keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Spread the bread with cream cheese.
- Flake the salmon on top (checking very carefully for any bones), then top with salad leaves. The leaves can be shredded very fine for younger babies, or left out.
- Cut into squares or triangles (or fish shapes!) and serve.
