Young’s Foodservice Produces Fishy Facts to Educate Children on origin of Fish (and Fish Fingers!)
Following the recent news that 18% of 5-7 year olds believe that fish fingers are made from chicken*, Young’s Foodservice is urging both caterers and teachers to utilise their brand new microsite created entirely for schools. The new microsite, accessed via www.youngsfoodservice.co.uk, is designed to be a complete resource for school caterers, as well as teachers, and has been launched as part of Young’s Foodservices’ continuing commitment to the education sector. In addition to a whole host of useful recipes and inspiration for school caterers, there are also a selection of handy, colourful factsheets on ‘fishy facts’ that are ideal for use as a fun and educational tool in the classroom or dining hall.
Including everything from the latest Young’s Foodservice news through to detailed product specifications, as well as a selection of exciting recipes designed to help inspire school caterers, the new microsite will quickly be the ‘go to’ location for seafood within education.
Young’s Foodservice offer an extensive range of delicious school menu options, from their oily fish solution, Mak ‘n’ Cheese Mini Fishcakes, to their ‘Never Been Fried’ range, which includes the Young’s Ultimate Fishcake and Young’s Ultimate Fish Finger, free from Wheat, Gluten and Milk.
Now, as well as browsing the extensive list of products that are on offer; school caterers can also use the ‘recipe’ section of the new school’s microsite to get inspiration for exciting new dishes to try such as Fish Finger Pie and Fish, Cheese & Tomato Bake. All recipes have been developed to meet School Food Standard guidelines with full nutritional information provided.
Other features of the site include a handy Q&A section with useful advice for school caterers on all things fish related, from ways to add seafood variety to their school menu’s to tips on how to source sustainable fish.
Speaking of the new microsite launch, Adrian Greaves, Foodservice Director at Young’s Foodservice said:
“We are very excited about the launch of our new microsite which will be a valuable resource for school caterers across the country. The site includes exciting features which we hope will not only prove useful in getting children more engaged about seafood but also encourage them to eat more fish. The site will also help to inspire and educate school caterers and teachers alike, about the different species of fish available and the wide range of solutions we offer.”
