My 19 month daughter loves eating cream dory fish, easily available here in Dubai. It's filleted, boneless, scaleless, tasty and easy to prepare, so I love it too! But is it a healthy fish for kids? Help, please!

I read an article online about cream dory. I love this fish too bec it's easy to prepare. But to my surprise, it's not as good as I think it is. I research more for facts but this is where I was led to. Please read this link and do your research too if you want to make sure we're getting all facts. Thanks. http://not2eat.blogspot.com/2009/09/plea...

The bigger concern at this age is the mercury level in the fish. If it's from a fish farm, there's not going to be any mercury in it, so the fish will be safe to eat. And in terms of the fat content, your 19 month old needs healthy fats to help her grow. If you fry it with a lot of butter or oil, you will want to use your best judgement to make sure she's not getting too much of the bad fats in her diet.

Usually they are not very healthy.
Try to do them your self. Find a boneless fish, deep them in egg and bread crums, put some tasty herbs. Try to go natural and avoid the fried food.

I don't know much about dory fish but check the mercury content. That is the main thing to be concerned about.
