Our expert says:
I am glad that your child is responding so well to the change in diet - removal of artificial colourants, flavourants and preservatives helps a great deal as does supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids derived from foods like the tuna and sardines. You can actually buy fresh or frozen sardines at fish shops in the large cities if you live in one. The alternative is to use canned sardines which are still an excellent food being rich in high quality protein, B vitamins and omega-3 FAs. There is no reason why any preservatives need to be added to canned products including fish because the canning process prevents spoilage (which is why preservatives are added to other foods). You will have to check the sodium content on the different brands and decide which one is suitable.
