Canned fish are great, easy and affordable options for getting our two serves of fish each week. Popular options include canned tuna, salmon and sardines. They provide a good source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as calcium. Plain or ‘lite’ options in springwater are the best as flavoured, in brine (salted water) and oil-based options can add unwanted sodium and extra calories. However, for children if they only like the flavoured option – it’s better than no fish at all!
