We were at a primary school in Crowle recently, working with a very large group of children aged between 3 and 7.
First we did our usual presentation to the school, which is designed to teach the children about the importance of a healthy diet and how introducing seafood can benefit the way our brain and body functions.
Then we did something a bit different, which was to bring some whole fish in for them to touch and feel. We gave the children an opportunity to see how the fish move and the different parts of the fish and how they are all different.
The children responded really well and were fascinated by the fish, particularly the monkfish!
We took some fish for them taste! A nice mixture of smoked salmon and smoked mackerel dips with crudités. Some prawns, salmon, haddock, lemon sole and plaice. All of the children had a taste and when asked they scored most of the things they tried 10/10!
We had such a brilliant time and the kids seemed to really enjoy it! Hopefully they learned something and will take the information away with them. It would be lovely if they continue with their new found love for seafood!
