How to make food fun and healthy for kids with Little Yeos

Yeo Valley are all about enjoying good quality, tasty food, and living a healthy lifestyle.

These are values that we also hold dear and make a key part of our children’s lives.

zb3My kids love to get out and about in the fresh air doing anything from bike rides, football and tennis to bouncing on odd orange balls!

Both my son and daughter have regular exercise and I think this is so  important. It helps their little bodies be strong and tough and it teaches them about discipline and commitment.

Mostly though they love to play outside, it is just really really good fun and makes them smile.

Just being outside in the fresh air and amongst nature has it’s own benefits. I love to teach them about growing flowers and fruit and we love to craft from nature too.

Both my children are vegetarian and we have to really consider their diet. As they get older it’s really important they make good food choices for themselves.  I try and talk to them about healthy food and involve them in preparing healthy food whenever the opportunity arises.

Here is A making her daddy a breakfast berry jar. She enjoys making food for people and we keep it simple nutritious and fun. I think when children are involved in making food they give it a lot more thought.

A is rightly proud of what she makes and this will encourage her hopefully to always see the value in preparing food. I absolutely make sure my son does this too and I am really hoping this means when they are older and more independent they will continue to eat well .

It o important not to  worry about the mess they make in the process too (though she did go to school with a big strawberry stain on her top..oops)

Little Yeos

Eating well and understanding food is just as important to kids health as fresh air and exercise.

We just love the Little Yeos from Yeo Vally that she has used in the breakfast berry jar. Yeo Valley make a whole range especially for children which you can find here.

Their scrumptious  range includes:

 6 pack Natural Fromage Frais 

This range is is organic and contains nothing artificial, so  no added sugar making it ideal for weaning. It can an be mixed with pureed fruit or veg to create your own flavours too!

6 pack fruited Fromage Frais

These are made with creamy organic fromage frais and organic fruit purées. There’s no added refined sugar so they’re also ideal for weaning and beyond .

4-pack yogurts

these are perfect for children with bigger appectites.  Inside you get creamy Yogurt, some puréed fruit (real organic strawberry, raspberry, apricot or peach) and just a little bit of organic sugar.

Gorgeous!

As well as tasting delicious Little Yeos are also really good for my kids health. A win, win situation!

    Hello Becky

    It’s nice to see a happy family. It’s amazing how healthy lifestyle affects the mood in everyday life. Healthy vegetarian recipes should not be very difficult to create, as vegetables are the most important part of any diet. If you come from a family with high cholesterol or high blood pressure, then it’s essential you go on a good vegetarian diet program for fast weight loss. The truth of the matter is that a balanced vegetarian diet is much healthier than a normal diet. Actually, vegetarians live an average of up to 7 years longer with a lot less cancer and medical problems. Being a vegetarian can be a very healthy lifestyle, some care needs to be taken that you do not become too fanatical and move towards a more restrictive, disordered eating pattern.

    Best of luck to you and your family.
