Gortons Seafood Lover's Sweepstakes!



This contest is closed - I have drawn the 5 winners and am waiting to hear back about the prizes & from the winners - Thank you for entering!


** This contest has been extended until 3/15 @ 10 pm  **


Have you ever heard that FISH is "Brain Food"?  I have. 
Often times when I am struggling to keep my energy up at work and I'm really tired I will mix up some tuna salad and eat it on crackers for a quick energy boost.  

"There is more and more evidence showing the role of seafood consumption in brain evolution, development and mental health."

Dr. Michael Crawford, PhD CBiol, FIBiol, FRCPath, is founder and director of The Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, London, and one of the world’s foremost authorities on seafood and brain development research.

So, HOW do you get your kid's to eat more fish?  Seafood, like Breakfast, is an important component in our lives.  It gives us energy, omega 3's, helps boost our memory, judgement skills, promotes heart health and may lower the risk of many chronic diseases later in life.

Gorton's website provides many tips that you can use to help your family get the proper amounts of seafood in their diet.  They also provide delicious recipes your kids will enjoy helping you to prepare and suggestions on how to help your picky eaters eat their fish.


BUY IT!
