Nutritional values

It provides children with two thirds of their daily zinc requirement and one third of their calcium requirement. Zinc helps wounds to heal and strengthens the body's defences against infections - something children can use all year round! Calcium ensures that bones and teeth continue to develop and become nice and stable.

Great variation with which you can tempt your children to eat fish: Instead of turkey, use pollack fillet, sprinkle slices with a few drops of lemon juice after frying. The fish portion contains plenty of iodine, which the thyroid gland needs for growth-regulating hormones.
