Autumn Treasures With Little Yeos

Little Yeos

We love getting outdoors in all weathers and autumn is no different. It might be a bit cooler, but it’s still warm enough for a picnic after collecting some autumn treasures.

There aren’t many chestnut trees in our area, but there is one in a nearby parkland. So on our way to our picnic we had a look around and found a handful of chestnuts still in their spiky shells. Littlest helped me crack them open to get to the shiny conkers inside. Hopefully we will find some more soon, but the boys were very pleased with their find.

We also added a few acorns and leaves to our treasure hunt and collected a bowl of blackberries on the way to the park.  A few may have been eaten on the way!

The boys were quite hungry after cycling all the way down to the park and finding lots of autumnal treasures so we set up the picnic blanket and got all the delicious food out.  The boys weren’t particularly patient and dug into the food as soon as I lifted it out of the basket.

We try and keep the boys meals fairly healthy and prefer food that is low in salt and sugar wherever possible.  This isn’t always easy as so much childrens food has added sugar.

Yeo Valley Little Yeos fromage frais are a great healthy snack for little ones. They contain creamy organic fromage frais and organic fruit purees with no refined sugar, which is perfect for younger children.

There are also Little Yeos yeoghurts available, which are a little bigger and contain creamy yoghurt, pureed fruit and a tiny bit of sugar.

Without any refined sugar, Little Yeos are great for developing healthy eating habits early on in life.  Of course, the fact that they are just delicious tasting helps too!

The Little Yeos clearly went down well with littlest, my little yoghurt thief!

Have you had any picnics this autumn?

    I love your picnic basket, I keep meaning to buy one for us. We haven’t been out walking in 2 weeks as we’ve been so busy, I need to get out this weekend. My kids love yogurts (But I’m not keen) I will have to give these ones a try. Sarah #WhatevertheWeather

    What a lovely picnic and you found conkers! We’ve had to do short walks recently but did sit out in the sun at a restaurant on a walk recently but I think that’s cheating a bit! We’ve yet to find a decent conker haul.

    Very jealous of your bowls and picnic basket… our picnics usually end up in tupperware boxes stuffed into a rucksack. Practical, yes; beautiful, no. ;o)

    p.s. I was very honoured to have been chosen as one of your posts of the week. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Aww I love picnics, this looks fab. We went out at the weekend to find some conkers, but couldn’t find any yet. x

    LOVE that picnic hamper basket… totally got basket envy! We have been collecting HUNDREDS of conkers. I’m on the hunt for pine cones but there is a distinct lack near me so I suspect we will be looking further afield.

    Ah I love a good picnic. Looks like you had a lovely day and there’s also the advantage of eating outside that you don’t have to clean up after! Finn is a massive yoghurt fan, in fact anything dairy is a hit!

    Your Autumn picnic looks great fun. It’s so hard to pick out healthy options to put your trust in isn’t it. #Whatevertheweather

    Ah, what weather you had for an autumn picnic! This sounds like a lovely afternoon. I love that you collected conkers and your own blackberries to add your mini feast. I have to admit I’m a bit partial to Little yeos too.
