Do You Give Your Children Raw Fish either Sushi or Sashimi?

michele cindy | Dec 5, 2008 09:18 AM

I asked my kid’s pediatrician, if they were old enough to eat sushi, I was surprised when they replied it's better to wait until they're older, in their teens. I asked, was it because of safety issues? They said the main concern is mercury levels are too high for young growing bodies. I was disappointed to hear this, but I will go with his advice. Just wondering what others thought, or did with their kids when it came to sushi. Thanks!
