Another key element for success with seafood is to engage and inspire your staff to be supporters for seafood as part of a healthy student’s diet.

Educate: Once your staff understands the importance of including seafood in the diet they will be more likely to encourage students to eat it. Share the USDA’s new dietary recommendation of two servings of seafood per week and explain that seafood provides nutrients that are not easily found in other foods. Refer to the scientific studies on the health benefits of seafood for children for more information.

Source Wisely: Some staff might be reluctant to serve seafood because they have had bad experiences with poor quality fish in the past. If your staff, administrators or students complain that seafood creates bad odors in the kitchen or cafeteria, it’s a clear sign that the quality of

your seafood has been compromised. High quality fish smells great when it is cooking. To get the best quality, refer to our sourcing information.

Inspire: Just like students, some staff members might not have had much experience with seafood. Hold a staff tasting prior to introducing new seafood products to show them how delicious your seafood menu items are. Encourage them to sample and merchandise seafood in creative ways to show them that fish can be fun as well as healthy
