According to the Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen (H), children and young people must eat even more Norwegian seafood.
Out of the total NOK 13 million, NOK 10 million goes to the diet program Fiskesprell, which, among other things, will support courses for employees in kindergartens and schools.
“Good dietary habits are established early in life. Ensuring good habits is, therefore, an important investment. Seafood is healthy, good, and something we must eat more in the future. Increased seafood consumption is good both for the environment and for the population’s health,” Ingebrigtsen said.
In addition, NOK 3 million will be distributed to projects that will give children and young people good experiences with fish and seafood.
Institutions, organizations, companies, and private individuals in Norway can apply for funding of such projects.
