SeaPak introduces Shrimp Sea Pals, shaped like turtles and starfish, and designed to encourage kids to eat at least two servings of seafood each week, as recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. SeaPak says the new product offers a quick and hassle-free option for families who like to have a little fun with their food.
"At SeaPak, our goal is to make seafood an easy fit for everyday busy life," says Kristen Beadon, the company's director of marketing. "We're always looking for new ways to serve up great-tasting seafood, whether it's by introducing new flavors, new kinds of seafood or, in this case, new shapes."
With these sea animal-shaped shrimp sea pals, every meal can now be like an underwater adventure, Beadon adds. "We wanted to create a kid-friendly seafood option for the frozen food aisle, while assuring moms and dads that they could feel good about serving nutritious and delicious shrimp to their children."
When it comes to satisfying snacks that will support a child's growth and development, Rachael Hartley, registered dietitian and nutritionist, recommends always including a source of protein in the mix.
The new Shrimp Sea Pals fit that bill, containing 14 grams of protein per serving. Wrapped in a crunchy, whole-grain breading, the shrimp sea pals also are a good source of dietary fiber and nutrients and do not contain any artificial preservatives or colors.
"As a dietitian, I love that they are made with whole grains," Hartley says. "With their playful shapes and great taste, SeaPak's Shrimp Sea Pals make it easy and fun to serve seafood to your family members, even those who may not always be open to new foods."
SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals can be found in the freezer aisle at major retailers and in grocery chains locations nationwide.
