Salmon and Sweet Potato Patties Bento


Salmon has so many benefits for health. It is considered as one of nature's superfoods as it is rich of Omega 3s. Superfood is a term used to describe food that is naturally rich in a multiple number of essential vitamins and minerals. Studies show that superfoods provide significant disease prevention, beyond other foods.

Since Omega 3s are essential for brain development and function, I always try to incorporate it in my kids diet. This salmon & sweet potato patties are so easy to make and taste so good.
