Chef Lesley Waters cooks great food for fussy kids
We all know what it is like when it
comes to tea time with kids it can be hard enough

be difficult to get them to eat the right foods, and
to know if they are getting enough nutrients, particularly
as some toddlers can become fussy eaters during this
Help is here with Celebrity Chef and mother Lesley
Waters along with SMA Nutritionist Anne Sidnell who
have designed six easy meals to satisfy even the fussiest
of taste buds, and helps provide balanced meals with
key nutrients like Iron, Omega 3 and 6 and Vitamin D
that are needed for healthy growth and development.
The first recipe Lesley cooks in the series is Scouts
Pink Fish Macaroni, her daughters favourite
meal when she was a toddler.
Lesley & Annes tip:
Salmon is really great to use in this recipe as it
is a mild fish most children like and it also contains
Omega 3 which is important for brain and eye development.
