This is especially significant for our children, with a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet being so important for their development.
We think it’s vital to promote the health benefits that Cod and Haddock have on the growth of our children including developing a strong heart and nervous system, maintaining brain function and vision and creating healthy skin and bones to name just a few.
The government recommends we eat at least two portions of fish a week, so we believe it is important for kids to learn all about fish.
Some initiatives have tried to incorporate knowledge of fish into the school curriculum, so we thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of the ways of getting your kids to enjoy learning about fish at home.
Here are some top tips on making learning about fish fun:
- Can your kids pick out a Cod from a Coley, a Haddock from a Pollock? In order to know the benefits of fish, they first need to be able to tell them apart. Try making it into a game, like family favourite guess who.
- How many reasons can your kids name, on why fish is good for you? The more reasons, the more rewards!
- Make fun sized samples of different types of fish to see which ones they like best.
- Teach your young ones some simple recipes. By taking part in preparing a meal, they will gain a better understanding of what makes a healthy fish dish. Try laying out the ingredients, with a few missing. Can they guess the missing link?
- Make fish dishes look fun, let your and their imagination go wild. We particularly like this fishfinger Stonehenge!
