Fish and chips

Fish and chips are often given a bad press for their high calorie and fat content, but there are also plenty of good points. Providing you skip the salt pot, a typical portion of cod and chips contains no more than 0.4g salt – that’s around seven percent of the maximum 6g we should have in a day. The fish is also rich in protein, and provides a variety of vitamins and minerals. Cod for example, provides vitamin B12, potassium, phosphorus, selenium and iodine. Similarly, haddock contains all these nutrients as well as niacin and vitamin B6
