Tuna Roll-Ups

Inspire children to love eating fish as it is a fantastic source of healthy fats, protein and other nutrients. Populations that eat more fish tend to have lower rates of heart disease. Choose light tuna and tuna caught in the Pacific Northwest to minimize mercury levels (for more information on this issue, visit Health Canada or HealthLinkBC  Mercury in Fish ). This recipe uses plain yogurt (and/or avocado) in place of mayonnaise.
