Today, I prepared a salmon orzo pasta salad. The dish is fairly simple. I broke baked salmon into large pieces and combined them with orzo pasta and a variety of vegetables such as zucchini, corn, roasted bell peppers and string beans.

Baby Aria has a good appetite and given that she's more of a toddler now, she’s able to eat whatever we eat. She's becoming independent and discovers the textures, colors and tastes of new foods every day, especially since she's able to pick up food with a spoon and eat by herself. With dishes like this one, feeding kids nutrient-rich, colorful foods couldn't be easier!

If you have some leftover roast chicken, you can dice or shred it and add it to the salad as well.
