The easy, must-try salmon recipe for your toddler

Could your little one eat sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner? And does your local sushi train know you by first name?

Then this is the easy salmon recipe your toddler will request on repeat.

All you need to whip up these toddler-pleasing, mouth-watering Salmon Rice Balls is a few staple ingredients, fresh salmon and a little patience. We love to turn this recipe into a family cooking session because itā€™s so hands-on. Grab your toddler, put on some tunes and suddenly todayā€™s afternoon snack becomes a fun family activity.

Hereā€™s a little hack for you:

This recipe keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days which is a great excuse to make this recipe in bulk as a healthy lunchbox filler, 3pm pick-me-up or out-and-about snack for the rest of the week.

Simply serve these Salmon Rice Balls fresh out of the oven on our Stickie Plate or take them with you in our handy Bear, Cat or Bunny Snackie. Itā€™s the easiest way to turn mundane mealtime into a fun feast!

And when your toddler has taken the last bite, simply pop your favourite We Might Be Tiny product into the dishwasher to take care of business for you. We know youā€™ve got more important things to do so weā€™ve designed the entire product range with busy parents in mind. Itā€™s dishwasher, freezer, oven and microwave-safe so you donā€™t have to take your mind on what really matters.
