Here are ways to kp them from turning up their lile 5 1 CODE WORD: MILD You may love a good swordfish steak, but even many seafood- squeamish adults aren't interested in a very fishy-tasting fish. You need a good entry-level, mild tasting, white- fleshed fish: flounder, cod, grouper or pollock are good options to start with. 3 USE KID-FRIENDLY TECHNIQUES AND CONDIMENTS If you're trying to win a table of children over to fish, it's not the time to present them with a whole grilled fish — they are very, very unlikely to respond positively to the eyes, scales, tail and everything staring back at them! It's also not the time to be fussy about lemon juice and tartar sauce. Those might not be terribly appealing to kids, who would probably rather just dunk everything in ranch dressing or ketchup and call it a day. After all, it just means more tartar sauce for you. 2 SUBTERFUGE RESORT TO Kids might be more willing to try fish if, when it's presented to them, it already looks (and maybe even tastes) like an old favorite. Say you were to slice fish fillets into tender- size strips, soak them in milk to minimize the fishy taste and smell, bread them and then bake or lightly fry them. They would look an awful lot like chicken tenders. You wouldn't necessarily need to TELL the kids they weren't chicken tenders before they tried them. Every parent knows that sometimes, a little trickery is a necessary means to an end!

But on those Lenten evenings when meat is off the menu, it's nice to have some options that are healthier, and more adult-friendly, than mac and cheese. Besides, helping your kids grow an appreciation for seafood will pay off with more adventurous eaters down the road.
