With the increased publicity around portion sizes, now could be the time to offer a lighter option on your menu.
The Lite-Bite box was designed to allow you to offer an alternative portion of the nation’s favourite food – fish and chips. Offering a lighter menu option can help attract more people into your shop for their lunch or evening meal if they are looking for a lighter option.
Using the Lite-Bite boxes, which have been specially designed to allow you to offer a smaller portion. allows you to offer your customers a portion-controlled meal size of fish and chips.
The Perfect Size
With more people becoming health-conscious and looking at what they are eating, offering a range of sizes on your menu can help attract people and increase footfall into your shop. Therefore, the Lite-Bite box has been designed to control portions and offer a balanced meal.
If you cook in vegetable frying oil and offer a 5oz fish and chips in your Lite-Bite box it comes out at 656 kcal* which is 33% of a female daily allowance and 27% of a male’s allowance. Another option could be to offer a 6oz fish and 6oz chips which works out around 809 kcal*.
*Calories calculated in laboratory environment based on the individual portion sizes outlined. These kcal values should be used as a guide only. Kcal amounts will vary between different fish and chip shops
The box can approximately hold a portion consisting of a 6oz battered fish (4oz unbattered), a 6oz portion of chips and an optional 4oz side of mushy peas, curry sauce or gravy.
