Switch up your family meals simple and healthy food swaps from Princes

These days we're all aware of the importance of eating a balanced diet

With many families choosing to eat less meat and try more fish and plant-based dishes instead. Eating more fish can be good for our health, which is why more and more of us are making a conscious effort to think about what we eat.

By making this switch from red meat to fish, it allows families to mix-up their meal choices and try different and exciting foods. Fish is low in saturated fats and high protein, which is great for our bodies and exciting for mealtimes. So how can you help your family try out more fish-fuelled meals while keeping your fussy eaters happy?

Canned fish is the answer – it costs less than fresh fish and is a simple, fuss-free way to get those much-needed nutrients onto the menu. There’s a huge variety of different types to choose from, including oily fish, such as salmon and mackerel, a great source of Omega 3, or high in protein fish such as tuna.

Why canned fish?

A healthy balanced diet should include at least two portions of fish a week with one of your recommended weekly portions being an oily fish1

Oily fish, which is particularly high in long-chain omega 3 fatty acids1 can also boost the amount of protein in our diets1 – which can help to maintain strong bones and muscles1.

At Princes, we’ve developed some recipes to make it simple to incorporate fish into your family’s diet.
