Making healthy family meals with fish fingers is easy, just be sure to include the following three elements for a balanced, nutritious meal:
1. The Protein: Adding a good source of protein is essential when it comes to creating healthy family meals. Our Omega-3 fish fingers are a great choice of quality protein and are an easy way to get your family towards your recommended two portions of fish per week.
2. The Carbohydrates: Starchy carbohydrates such as pasta, rice and potatoes should make up a good portion of your meal, and where possible, it’s best to eat wholegrain versions. Carbohydrates are a great source of energy and make up an important part of a balanced diet.
3. The fruit and vegetables: Aim to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day and make sure you fill half of your plate with a variety of vegetables to make up the rest of your healthy meal. Eating different vegetables is important to ensure you get a varied mix of vitamins and minerals, plus it’s a great way of making dinners look more appetising with a combination of colourful vegetables!
With these three elements on your plate, you’ll be well on your way to creating healthy and nutritious meals for all the family whilst enjoying the nutritional value of fish fingers.
Whether you enjoy them for lunch or as your main meal, Birds Eye fish fingers are wholesome and hearty and a great way to encourage your whole family to enjoy fish.
