Sardine Parfait

Kirby loves sardines.  Usually I just chop some up and add to his meal.  Kirby also loves cottage cheese. I was in a festive mood so I decided to be a little creative since I'm sure he appreciated the extra effort!

Now before you say gross consider this: Sardines are a popular Italian fish which are rich in vitamins and minerals to support proper nervous system function and convert food into energy, are also a natural source of marine omega-3 fatty acids, and because they are low in the food chain, they are very low in contaminants.
