“ Brand: Yeo Valley / Type: Yoghurts / Food quality: Organic food „
My son has a real penchant for yoghurts and yogurty treats. As he is well into his first year at school and has opted for a lunchbox lunch, I was pleased to able to offer him a selection of what I would deem "healthy" snacks.
Also I do tend to veer towards the "tubes" of yoghurt, as not only are they healthy and filling but freezable, meaning that they keep the rest of his lunch cool as well, a female of the yoghurt world surely....multi tasking!
After running out of Con's particular brand, and getting to Asda and them being out of stock too, I decided to give a better branded product a go, well they were on offer so why not!
The product I will now review is -"Yeo Valley Organic - Yeo's"
These are simply advertised as being organic thick and creamy probiotic yoghurt tubes with no bits.
These tubes come housed within there own cardboard box which holds all the relevant information along with the contents and description.
In the box there are 9 x real fruit yoghurt tubes.
3 x strawberry,
3 x apricot,
3 x raspberry.
All of the above mentioned flavours have got a corresponding coloured plastic tube with a tiny nick at the top, this helps for the child to rip of before eating.
Each flavour tastes as you would expect, creamy, tasting of the fruit that it should do, with one problem.....I don't think there is any sugar anywhere!
I know to some parents this would be ideal, but even I struggled with one, and I quite like sour food, so when you are eating something that is naturally sour, like raspberries the lack of sweetness is rarely going to appeal to a child, especially since a child's taste buds don't develop until much later in life, meaning that some sour things are unbearable to eat.
The nutritional information is as follows -
Per 100g (though it doesn't state how much each tube holds),
These also contain probiotic live cultures, suitable for vegetarians and are gluten free.
These are available for around the £1.50 mark, though are on offer currently at Asda, "3 boxes for £3.00".

Do I recommend these, for my children no, Con really couldn't eat them and I even I struggled!
