The simple dish inspired thousands.
“Omg, this is one my favorite combos.” This will be done tomorrow,” one person commented.
“Yum, thanks very much for the inspiration,” added another.

Another clarified that “They can have this in moderation”.
It is safe for all age groups. Pregnant womenConsume 2-3 servings of any tuna or salmon per week, fresh or canned.
Due to the high mercury content, however, it is not recommended for women to eat more than this.

It was a difficult task to determine what my toddler would like to eat each day, just as any mom. Many people ask me what Arna eats, and if she is a picky eater. I say yes and no. Kayla shared a series images and wrote a few words.
‘SheShe isn’t fussy about WHAT she eats. But when it comes to the LOOK, SHAPE and COLOUR of her food, that is when the tantrums get started!!
“Last week, my sweet girl who loves oats decided she would only eat BLUE oats. This child is truly amazing.
Kayla added blended blueberries to the oats to make them blue.
Eating fish during pregnancy
* Fish is a highly nutritious food and an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, Iodine and omega-3 fatty acids. If you are pregnant, or breastfeeding, all these nutrients offer important health benefits to your baby.
* The concern with eating fish is that the high mercury content in some types of fish can damage the nervous system of babies or young children.
* While all fish contain some methyl-mercury, most fish in Australian waters have very low mercury levels. Most people don’t consider mercury from fish to be a danger to their health.
* The Australian Dietary Guidelines advise eating one or two fish meals per week for good health. There are only a few types of fish, that authorities recommend limiting in the diet – these are billfish (swordfish/broadbill and marlin), shark/flake, orange roughy and catfish.
* Pregnant women, women planning pregnancy and young children should limit their intake of shark (flake), broadbill, marlin and swordfish to no more than one serve per fortnight with no other fish to be consumed during that fortnight.
* Two to three serves (one serving is 150 grams) of other types of fish are quite safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women or for women planning pregnancy.
* 2-3 serves a week of fish with lower levels of mercury (see below) is quite safe.
