Our family is always on a quest to mix in new and nutritional meals that are both kid and family approved and we love recipes that are simple, sophisticated and super easy to make. Today we are sharing one of our family favorite salmon recipes. It has the texture of a fried piece of fish with its' crispy baked panko coating and the mustard marinade masks any fishy flavors that sometimes turns kids off of eating salmon. Not only is salmon delicious but it also packed with omega 3 fatty acids, which are proven to improve our mood...win, win!

Getting kids involved in the kitchen is a fun and hands on way to teach them about nutrition. Most kids know the value of eating healthy and introducing them to new recipes is a wonderful way to keep mealtime a fun and an engaging experience. Preparing healthy meals together helps to provide children with a healthy foundation for future eating habits.
