This kid-friendly fish curry couscous is very easy and ideal for kids from 1 year, as the fish has been deboned well to avoid any choking hazard.
Couscous is a type of pasta that is made up of semolina and wheat flour. It can make a good alternative to rice dishes for kids as they almost look the same in appearance. The best thing about couscous is that it does not need any cooking, so all you need is hot boiled water or stock to make one up. It also increases in size a lot, so a little goes a long way.
