SeaPak launches breaded shrimp for kids
SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. is selling a new breaded shrimp product geared towards children in supermarket chains such as Publix and Food Lion.
The SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals are whole grain-breaded, minced shrimp bites in the shape of sea turtles and starfish.
Each 16-ounce SeaPals pack contains five severing and retails for a suggested USD 7.99 (EUR 7.16).
Recent studies show that American children aren’t eating enough seafood – U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend Americans eat two seafood servings per week – prompting SeaPak to create its latest product offering, the company said in a press release.
“Knowing there was a real need for a kid-centric product in the frozen seafood aisle, we created SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals,” SeaPak Director of Marketing Kristen Beadon said. “Now, parents have a freezer-friendly option that offers all the health benefits of seafood children often miss out on, complete with a kid-friendly taste and a great fun factor.”
Sea Pals contain 14 grams of protein per serving and no artificial preservatives or colors. The product is made with Marine Stewardship Council-certified shrimp.
