The Mumsnet thread started when user, Boooooot, asked: “What’s an adult-size portion of fish fingers??”

One fish finger fan commented: “I would have said two was enough!”.

Although not everyone was in agreement, another said: “Two? Two fish fingers for a full-sized human being?! I'd laugh if someone gave me two fish fingers!”.

Another fan explained: “6-8 in our house, teenagers and adults. With peas or baked beans (and sometimes mash). Or 4 in a sandwich (with cucumber and brown sauce).

“We're all a healthy weight but 3 or 4 wouldn't touch the sides!”.

But now the experts at Birds Eye have set the record straight, saying: “The recommended adult-size portion for their standard Fish Fingers is four fingers.

“For those wanting to opt for something a bit more hearty, Birds Eye recommends two of their Chunky Fish Fingers for an adult-size portion.

“But they stress that children's nutritional needs differ to those of adults, so smaller portion sizes might be more appropriate.

“Remember, it’s recommended that a healthy, balanced diet should include at least 2 portions of fish a week, including 1 of oily fish.”
