Fish Heroes Project
We are delighted to be one of 250 schools in the UK that will receive Alaska wild pink salmon, courtesy of the Food Teachers Centre and Alaska Seafood UK - 10,000 salmon fillets are being send to schools! Our school is one of the lucky schools.
It’s part of the Fish Heroes project, which encourages young people to learn about, cook and taste fish. Pupils will also be learning about the health benefits of fish in the diet (did you know that we are all recommended to each 2 portions a week?), as well as aspects of sustainability. Children in the UK eat just 84g of fish/fish products a week, of which only 21g is oily fish - way below recommendations.
Pupils will be cooking a range of dishes, learning new food skills which they will be able to use in the future. As part of the lesson, they will also be able be to taste the fish. Perhaps your child will be inspired and cook for you at home too?
We really hope that it will be an amazing experience for the pupils - from the delivery, cooking and tasting of Alaska pink salmon. Pupils should really enjoy the experience and have learn many important life skills.
