Why We Love Fish

Back to why we love fish

Sarah Keogh, JOHN WEST Nutrition Consultant.

Over the past few years there has been a growing recognition of the importance of good food for good health, in particular fish which is a key source of Omega and vitamins. The foods we choose to buy and eat can have an enormous impact on our health and well-being. This is why so many people are looking at the foods they eat and want to find out more about how changing their diet can help with many illnesses and problems.

People are also more aware of what goes into their food and are more health conscious when shopping. Supermarkets and food businesses are also reognising the importance of supplying quality produce &  good information about their foods to help their customers make healthy decisions. At John West, we aim to help you understand how important nutrition is to a balanced, healthy lifestyle and bring you monthly nutrition tips, healthy recipes & lifestyle advice for you and your family in our new Healthy Living Ezine Sign up here



The goodness of fish is well known but you may be surprised at just how much fish has to offer.  Fish is rich in protein and low in saturated fat.  It is also a great source of B vitamins like vitamin B12 as well as minerals like iodine and selenium.  

Oil rich fish has the added benefit of being rich in the essential omega-3 fats EPA and DHA as well as vitamin D. 


Tinned have a lot to offer when it comes to adding fish goodness.  Just like fresh fish, tinned fish are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals.  Tinned sardines and salmon are also great sources of calcium – one tin of sardines has as much calcium as two glasses of milk! 


Tinned fish is a quick, easy and convenient way to add fish goodness to your meals and snacks.  Keep John West in the cupboard and check out our recipes to find out how you can make quick, tasty and nutritious meals with the goodness of fish.
