Fly high with BB Man and uncover your superpowers!

The competition is heating up as children in Oman uncover their superpowers and enter our fabulous competition, sponsored by The Butcher’s Block, the Sultanate’s premier butchery.

The Butcher’s Block promotes the importance of a healthy diet, especially for growing, active kids.

Studies show that nutrients like protein, vitamin B12 and zinc derived from natural, fresh meats – such as the products available at The Butcher’s Block – are essential for the immune system, growth, strength and brain power, which children need to help keep their focus and energy for busy days at school.


But that’s not all we need meat for. Based on a 2,000-calorie diet, just 85g of lean beef also provides you with phosphorus necessary for strong teeth and bones, iron that helps in carrying oxygen in the blood to all cells and muscles to prevent fatigue, and B-Complex vitamins (including niacin, vitamin B6 and riboflavin) that help release energy from food.

Therefore, a healthy lunchbox packed full of these nutrients goes a long way in ensuring that your kids are geared up to perform well at school.


“I personally prepare the lunchboxes of my children using the products from The Butcher’s Block,” says Karien Bekker, a regular customer of The Butcher’s Block.

“It may be a steak sandwich, a grilled sausage on a roll or even biltong for their break-time snack. Their products are always fresh and the best quality meat I’ve ever had in Oman.”


At The Butcher’s Block, you can find everything you need to ensure your family is eating the top, most natural meats in the Sultanate. These include natural and fresh chicken, lamb, beef and top-notch steak cuts from the US, South Africa and Australia.


The friendly, old-fashioned service at The Butcher’s Block is renowned with its customers while that “personal touch” is important for their internationally-trained butchers. And if your children are prone to allergies, you can even request The Butcher’s Block to customise your favourite sausages or marinated meats to ensure your entire family can enjoy the delicious produce on offer.

The Butcher’s Block has two outlets in Muscat – one in Al Mawaleh, opposite The Wave, Muscat, and a new branch at Al Noor Plaza in Madinat Sultan Qaboos.

To enter our BB MAN competition, all you have to do is pick up an entry form from one of The Butcher’s Block outlets. Once you’ve filled it out, drop it back off at The Butcher’s Block for your chance to win a RO350 cash prize and a RO150 gift voucher. The competition ends on September 10 and is open to children aged 12 years and under. Remember the card has to be completed by children – no help from mums and dads!

Good luck and may the best superhero win! In the meantime, mums and dads can try out this great recipe, at the top of this page.
