How to Get a Toddler to Eat Fish

Oliver actually likes tuna. I worry a bit about the mercury, so I only offer it to him occasionally. I'd prefer for him to eat other fish, but he always rejects it after a bite. Two weeks ago, I bought a little box of fish sticks and served them with Miracle Whip and ketchup. He considered eating more than a bite, but ultimately decided against it.

Well, today, I had an idea. I baked one fish stick, chopped it up, and mixed it with some Miracle Whip and mustard. It was almost like making deviled eggs, and it had the same consistency. Success! Oliver gobbled up the mush and asked for more.
