YOUNGSTERS at Douglas Park nursery had a 'fin-tastic' times as they were treated to a special fish supper lunch to celebrate National Seafood Week.

The kids were feeling fishy as they learned all about the variety of sealife in our waters as part of a widespread drive to encourage children to eat take more interest in our waters and to tuck into healthy fresh fish.

The Fish Works in Largs stepped in to offer free suppers to the nursery, as well as offering up a taste of some more unique dishes on their menu.

The award-winning business was founded in 2017 by Ross Irvin, whose family ran an ice cream kiosk in the town for 54 years, and his wife Tiffany.

Tiffany told the News that, in a time when more people than ever are dealing with obesity problems caused by unhealthy eating she felt it was important to deliver the message to youngsters about the benefits of fresh seafood.

She said: "We decided to provide fish and chips to the kids during the seafood week campaign to try and encourage children to eat more produce from our seas and to learn about why it is good for them.

"The children had their food delivered straight to the nursery and enjoyed the opportunity to try some other species of seafood such as langoustine, king prawn, lemon sole, plaice and squid."

Before tucking into their lunch, the kids ensured they were dressed for the occasion as they made and decorated their own chef hats with seafood week pencils and stickers.
