Salmon Mousse with Dill and Creamed Cucumber

Adding fish to your baby's food is very important, because it is a great source of protein and most importantly the Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely important for good brain, nerve and eye development. One of the very first fish you can give to your little one is salmon. It is very mild and your babies meal won't taste or smell fishy. You can mix salmon with various vegetables and make a very nutritious meal. When buying fresh fish always tell your fish monger that it is for a baby and to remove the bones. Usually the tail part of the fish has no bones but always mention it just in case.
