Sardines With Garlic Oil

Sardines may not be every kids first choice, but from what I read, they are a healthy one, packed with Omega 3 and energy boosting antioxidants. I’ve also found some great tips on how to get your kids to love these little critters and I’ve even tried this quick, easy and frugal recipe that my daughter seems to love.
