Grimsby, England-headquartered Young’s Foodservice has launched Flipper Dippers into its dedicated range of products offered to schools and institutional customers. The mixture of minced white fish and potato coated in crispy golden breadcrumbs is presented in the shape of fish to make it especially appealing to children.
As well as their fun shape, Flipper Dippers provide a natural source of Omega 3, which helps promote brain health and a healthy heart function, and are a good source of nutrition for children of all ages. With only 25% of youngsters aged 5-11 eating fish twice a week or more, Young’s believes it is important to encourage the consumption of seafood in schools to ensure pupils receive the essential nutrients that their bodies need.
Containing no artificial colors, fake flavors or preservatives and taking just 15 minutes to oven bake straight from frozen form, Flipper Dippers are quick and easy to prepare. They can be served with a wide range of accompaniments such as homemade mushy peas, salad or baked beans.
“We understand the struggle school caterers face when creating menus that are nutritionally balanced and that pupils really enjoy. That is why it is our priority to develop products that prove fish doesn’t have to be a challenge when it comes to kids,” said Adrian Greaves, Young’s foodservice director. “Our Flipper Dippers offer the best of both worlds because as well as being a source of Omega 3, their fun shape and tasty flavor makes them a winner with kids and caterers alike.”
Young’s Seafood Limited is ranked as the UK’s leading frozen fish and seafood business. Founded more than 200 years ago, the company’s popular brands today include Chip Shop and Gastro in the retail sector and Kingfrost in the foodservice segment.
