More natural food sources of B12 – (Posted late on 01/13 from 01/12)

Various types of fish are not only rich in Omega 3s, but also contain our much-needed Vitamin B12. The best fish sources include: salmon, rockfish, trout, haddock and herring. Salmon, of course is highly recommended (again, unless there are food allergies!). A 3-ounce portion of cooked salmon will provide your client with 80% of the RDA intake of Vitamin B12. Trout is even better since the same portion contains 90% of the RDA!

Again, it is recommended that you provide your clients with fish that has been farmed in the United States as these sources are ecologically friendly and contain the fewest contaminants possible. You do not want your clients getting sick from other sources. It would totally defeat the purpose!

When many caretakers cook fish for their clients, the clients won’t eat it because they do not care for the smell of the cooked fish. If this is the case with your client, you can always prepare bagged tuna fish for them either in a casserole or in a cold tuna salad. Although tuna is not the highest source of B12, one serving of canned light tuna in water does contain 42% of the recommended daily allowance of B12.

These simple bits of knowledge help you continue to show your clients that With Age Comes Respect!
