  • If they are not fried. Also if they are frozen they probably have preservatives.....
    You can ask them to atleast feel off the breading for him.

  • Not so much.... I'm sure there are worse things, but no, I wouldn't call them healthy.

  • Once in a while fish sticks are fine. They're delicious. But again once every two weeks is OK.

  • I'd say home made ones have the possibility of being considered healthy sometimes, but not really. :/
    Every once in a while though isn't bad.

  • Go to the grocery store, look at the nutrition label on a box for yourself, and make the decision for yourself. But IMO they are extremely unhealthy. Yes there are worse things, but they're near the bottom of my list.

  • I personally will never feed my children processed foods. If it comes prepackage or premade it is most likely unhealthy. The food they feed children in school is complete crap. Its literally the cheapest stuff they can get. They do not care about your childs nutrition they care about money... pack him a lunch.

  • You could ask to see the nutritional information on the fishsticks so as to be able to decide for yourself. Fishsticks, while not the best of foods, if baked and not fried, aren't all that bad when eaten in moderation and in conjunction with other, more healthy, foodstuffs. You could ask how they prepare the fishsticks and what will be served with the fishsticks, too, as well as if there are any alternatives if you don't want your child eating fishsticks.
