We're going to Brittany next week for half-term and wondering what we can cook.

Fish fingers are one of the few things she will eat but are they just sold in the UK?

Yes wo a doubt.
They might have slightly different shape (I think they are but wider and a bit thinner iyswim) but yes you can find them smile

Yes, we've been there with a fussy child! Supermarkets sell them and usually the packaging is almost identical to captain birds eye grin

Yes, good old Captain Igloo!

We also discovered some pretty good frozen convenience foods such as paella and risotto.

While you are in the freezer section, I recommend the bags of saute potato cubes for a quick side dish in a frying pan.

They definitely do sell 'batonnet de poisson' in France. Fish finger sandwiches are my go to comfort food when I'm feeling homesick!

They aren't often on children's menus in restaurants though - the choices are predominately steak hache (basically a burger without the bun) served with chips or pasta in butter or tomato sauce.
