Cook a cool mini fish pie - your baby will definitely like it! 

Oil rich fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines are especially good brain boosters. This is due to their high levels of omega-3 essential fats which are vital for brain function and can also help the performance of dyslexic and hyperactive kids.
