Researchers at QMU secured funding for a public engagement project aimed at increasing the intake of oil-rich fish in pre-school children. The work was supported with a grant from the Organix Foundation, a charity which funds research projects that help develop understanding of the links between food quality and children's health.

Our experts in nutrition collaborated with Olivebank Nursery in Musselburgh to encourage children to eat more oily fish as part of a balanced diet. The research team aimed to encourage children to become more aware of fish – where it comes from, what it tastes like, and how they can incorporate fishy snacks into their everyday diet.
