While fish and seafood are nutritious sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids, other foods also can deliver the recommended average intake for kids! #kidseatright
In recent years, omega-3 fatty acids have become something of a nutrition star. But what are they and what can they do for a growing child's body?

If your child isn't eating the lunch you pack, it may be because of these common reasons! #kidseatright #school #backtoschool 
You've packed your child a lunchbox worthy of sharing on social media, so why are the contents untouched at the end of the day? Work with your kids to see if some simple sleuthing can help you determine the cause of lunchtime leftovers.

Fish and seafood can be an acquired taste, but there's hope for parents who want their children to enjoy these healthy foods! #kidseatright #nutrition #parenting
What if someone told you there was a food that could improve your child's brain and heart health, takes only minutes to prepare and is packed with protein? There is! Fish — it does all this…and more.

Taco filling is typically made with ground meat, but it doesn't have to be. For this recipe, we combine the convenience of frozen shrimp with the usual taco seasonings — chili powder, cumin, garlic and salsa — and then toss in some unlikely ingredients: black beans and crushed pineapple.

Get the recipe! http://sm.eatright.org/polshrimptaco

Low-carb diets may be trendy for adults, but they're not meant for kids! The best carbohydrate choices also provide vitamins, minerals and fiber. #kidseatright #nutrition #healthyliving
In recent years, several diet fads have recommended the reduction, or even elimination, of carbohydrates from our usual diets. But are such "low carb" diets good for a child?

This #recipe for spicy salmon packs a protein punch! Bake or grill the marinated fish, then finish with a squeeze of lime before serving. Enjoy! #kidseatright #familydinner #omega3s
For a spicy salmon with a flavorful twist, try it with a blend of Indian spices known as garam masala.

For whatever reason, dairy milk may not be an option for your child. That's OK! These alternatives are kid-friendly and full of nutrients. #kidseatright 
Even without milk, calcium, protein and vitamin D can still be obtained through other kid-friendly foods and beverages.
