Can Seafood Make You Happy 3

It’s the summer holidays and parents are pulling their hair out trying to keep their kids occupied and more importantly fed throughout this busy time. It doesn’t matter if they are away on days out, picnics, or even just indoors, we know how important keeping your child fuelled can be and also how the cost can mount up.

We are hoping to help you out this summer with some ideas on how to keep the costs down and your children full up! 


These smoked mackerel pitta pockets are perfect when you are on the go. Especially if the kids have only got a short space between play dates, they need something quick to make and it’s so easy to add to a pack lunch! Plus mackerel has the added bonus of being number one on our omega-3 chart!


Sometimes when the kids come bounding back in after a busy day out, all they can think about is food. We think that this prawn stir fry dish is ideal for them, ready in ten minutes, they just have enough time to wash their hands and set the table for tea!


You don’t have to use smoked fish for this scrumptious recipe and the kids will be sure to love this cheese, toast and fish combo. Nom, nom, nom!


If your children are a little bit more adventurous, how about getting them to help make this glorious crab and avocado cocktail recipe? Children love trying something new if they’ve had a hand in making it!

Let us know what seafood speciality your kids love making by tweeting us at @fishisthedish.
