We’re all more aware of the importance of eating a balanced diet – and we’re often keen to try new and exciting food ideas. Cue a rising trend where many families are opting to eat less meat and try more fish and plant-based dishes.

Eating more fish can be great for our health and 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 enjoy health benefits such as low in saturated fats and high protein, which can be sourced from tuna. Great for our bodies and exciting for mealtimes. 

So how can you and your family try out more fish-fuelled meals while keeping fussy eaters happy?

I recommend integrating canned fish into family mealtimes which can be less costly and is a simple, fuss-free way to enjoy those much-needed nutrients. 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. 

Along with Princes, I’ve developed some recipes to make it simple to incorporate fish into your family’s diet.
