      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I would recommend these yummy little treats, not just for kids but also for adults!

      Yoplait is a brand of yoghurt under General mills, that is headquartered in France. Besides producing these Petits Filous, they also have other ranges of yoghurts including Perle de Lait (coconut flavoured), Yop drink (yoghurt drink), and even the Weight Watchers' yoghurts.

      I don't remember how I first got introduced to Yoplait - but once I did, I got addicted! I know these are pretty much targeted at kids, and I do feel kind of embarrassed admitting that I actually like these - but these little containers of yoghurt is simply so good!

      PACKAGING
      I typically find that these come in a pack of 6 small 50 g containers in supermarkets, although there are apparently special value packs with 18 x 50g, or the bigger pots of 4 x 100g. For the small pots, there are a couple of flavour variants as well! You can get it all in strawberry, or a mix of strawberry& apricot, or strawberry & raspberry. There's also strawberry, raspberry & peach layers but I've never tried those because the idea of eating something like jam in yoghurt is personally not very appealing.

      Because these containers are so small, you'll probably use a teaspoon or a rather small tablespoon - but that really makes it all the more fun to eat, because you feel like a kid all over again, eating your yoghurt in small portions rather than gulping it all down. Good for portion-size control!

      TASTE
      I like the Strawberry & Apricot mix the best, because these two flavours go very well with the fresh creamy yoghurt. There's a very nice creamy and milky taste (more so than other brands of yoghurts) that somehow makes you feel that you're getting all the calcium and yoghurty goodness (which is true!). The consistency is not as thick as other yoghurts like Yeo's in my opinion but it's just right for me. I don't really like the raspberry flavour sadly, and I think it's because raspberries tend to be a little sour and hence quite a bit of sugar has been added which makes it taste a little artificial.

      NUTRITION
      Each pot contains 6.3 g of carbohydrates of which 6.15 g is sugar, which I have to say is sadly a little high if you're watching your sugar intake. There's also 1.15 g of fat, and 75 mg of calcium (about 9% of RDA), and 2.05 g of protein. Considering that this is such a small pot of yoghurt, I'm not surprised that the values seem kind of small - but it's quite reasonable as a small treat if you manage to keep yourself to one pot. What I might like, nutritionally, about this is that it contains quite a fair amount of Vitamin D (about 13% RDA per pot) and Vitamin D (together with Calcium) is known to help to improve bone mineral density.

      There is also no artificial colours or sweeteners, or added preservatives, and lastly it's gluten free -so I think this is quite a good product for those who are on a restricted diet.

      PRICE
      You can find these in most major supermarkets for about 1.30 pounds, which does seem quite expensive compared to getting a large pot of yoghurt. I'm not surprised though because this is specially targeted a as a yoghurt for kids, but I would say that this can potentially be quite value for your money if you treat a pot of these as a small (and controlled) post-dinner dessert- something sweet to end off your meal and to give yourself a boost of calcium.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Lovely Creamy Fromage Frais

        I introduced my baby son to fromage frais and yogurt at 6 months of age. Whilst seeking out suitable weaning foods noticed Petit Filous fromage frais in the chilled aisle amongst the other yogurt type products.
        It actually states on the packaging 'suitable for all ages from weaning onwards'. That's good enough for me!

        The product is sold in variety packs of 6, strawberry, raspberry and apricot flavours. Each small pot contains 50g. More recently I have been buying them in bumper packs of 18. When sold like this they are secured together within a cardboard sleeve.

        The six packs cost in the region of £1.50. Tesco are currently selling three packs for £3.00. Or you can buy the 18 multipack for 1p cheaper at £2.99!
        They are so generous!!

        Once separated from the others, the lid is easily peeled back. There is a gentle aroma of fruit, not too over powering, just enticing! The fromage frais is not fluid, it does not wobble move at all until the spoon goes in. It is extremely thick and creamy, the type of fromage frais that you would kill for if on a diet.

        The fruit flavour is not incredibly intense, more of a hint mingled with the lovely creamy texture. There are no pieces or flecks of fruit so that baby can enjoy without fear of something becoming lodged in his throat.
        The great thing about this product is the consistency, it stays on the spoon until it enters the mouth (unless there is some disaster with a failed deflection of a little grabbing hand). It also remains the same consistency until the pot is finished, I have found with some others that they can become a little runny.

        My son absolutely loves these, he really can't get enough of them. It's a rare occasion when he eats only one, I suppose the pots are a little too small - if I were to look for any criticism, this would be it.
        Nutritional information on the packaging provides values based on eating two pots (100g), so the makers obviously don't think one is enough also!

        Two pots contain:

        Energy 104kcal
        Protein
        6.7g
        Carbohydrate 12.6g
        of which are sugars 12.4g
        Fat 2.9g
        of which saturates 1.9g
        Fibre 0.2g
        Sodium 0.04g
        Vitamin D - 30% Recommended daily allowance (RDA)
        Calcium - 17% RDA

        There are no artificial colours or preservatives, they are gluten free and also suitable for vegetarians, so an all round winner!

        I am really surprised at the fat content, I assumed it would be much higher due to it's luxuriously creamy texture, it certainly tastes much more indulgent than it is!
        To be honest, I'm surprised that there are any left for my children!
        I'm just off for a sneaky one now :-)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good for both children and adults

        Petits Filous are originally from France and sold to Britain. The fromage frais itself is very smooth, fruity, it has a sweet flavour and texture. I find this is unrivalled as other fromage frais can be too runny. It has the right consistency. Not too thick or creamy, but not too runny.

        Petits Filous contains both Vitamin D and Calcium which is a plus for children and adults alike. Each pot is a good portion for a child, although they are finished quite quickly for an adult. The packaging on the pot is well designed for children, with a fact or question on the side to get them thinking, although this is not on every pot so it will depend on which one you pick. There is also a nice diagram of how both vitamin D and calcium are essential for healthy bones.

        There are a good variety of flavours with strawberry, apricot and raspberry. These are the most popular flavours, there could be more flavours though. Each pack has 6 fromage frais pots that are easy to break from the main pack of 6. With the picture of the apricot, strawberry and raspberry, you can be sure you are getting the right one. The strawberry flavour is quite nice, although slightly artificial. I like the raspberry least, although I enjoy fresh raspberries, I find food that imitates raspberries not that flavourful. The apricot is the nicest flavour, as it is sweet and has a rounded apricot flavour to it.

        Disadvantages

        yummy fruit flavoured yogurt

        Petits Filous is a fro mage frais marketed under the Yoplait brand, sold in the UK. 'Petits Filous' is a French word which means little rascals. This product is aimed for children but adults would definitely put their spoons into it. Petits Filous is available in all major supermarkets

        I have been using petit filous yogurt for my kid since he was 10 months old, now he is 3 and I regularly buy this brand for my kid. I feel this is a good way of introducing calcium and vitamin D into my child diet. From next year my kid will be going to school full time and I intend to give this yogurt pot for his lunch box.

        The yogurt is smooth and creamy. The yogurts are available in strawberry, raspberry, apricot and peach flavours. The yogurt and the fruit flavour together mix well and we can taste the sweet yogurt and the fruit flavour very well. Strawberry and Raspberry flavours taste too sweet than Apricot flavour. The Strawberry and Raspberry yogurt are pink in colour and apricot is Light yellow colour. The yogurt pots should be kept refrigerated.

        They got varied yogurt flavours in different pot sizes. A special value pack contains Strawberry, raspberry and apricot Fromage frais of 18 pots each 50 gm. The packaging contains three layers, each layer containing six 50gm pots. These three layers are packed securely in a cardboard with petti filous label. The details of available fruit flavours can be clearly seen on the pack. Other packet varieties are strawberry fromage frais of six packs each 50 gm, Strawberry and Raspberry four big pots of 100 gm each, Strawberry and apricot six pots of 50 gm each, Strawberry and Raspberry six pots of 50 gm each.

        Currently Petits Filous Strawberry & Apricot Fromage Frais (6x50g) is available for £1.50 or any 3 FOR £3.00 - . Usually these yogurts are on offer and it is worth buying them at that time.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A guaranteed way to get your child's calcium intake up

        When my oldest child developed a sudden aversion to milk I had to quickly find lots of new ways to get calcium down her.
        Petits Filous worked a treat.
        They are sold in packs of 6, each pot being 50g and a great little size for young children as it doesn't look too intimidating. Each individual pot is about 2 inches tall and 1.5 inches in diameter. They each have the usual cellophane peel off lid.
        One yoghurt contains about 50 calories and 70mg of calcium, which is about 8% of a child's RDA.
        They are very sweet tasting and although there are no artificial colours or sweeteners, sugar is the second ingredient on the list, so beware if you are worried about your child developing a sweet tooth.
        They are suitable for vegetarians.
        The flavours of the yoghurts are strawberry, raspberry and apricot. They all taste lovely and my kids show no preference for a particular flavour. The yoghurts are quite thick, so stick well to the spoon, meaning less mess when young children are feeding themselves.
        These are very useful when weaning as babies love them and they are just the right amount for a 6 - 9 month old. As your children get bigger you may find they go through 2 pots at a time, so you will need to stock up.
        Price-wise they are very reasonable. Usually they are about £1.50 for 6, but often on BOGOF or on offer at £1 a pack.
        A great little childrens yoghurt

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good as a helathy snack

        What happened to the old advert? "Helps Make your bones grow strongerer" (though clearly not your brain.)

        ~~The yoghurt~~

        Petits filous are yoghurts primarily aimed at kids, (though I feel they're great for anyone lunch box) to help them get calcium, it has large portions of calcium and vitamin D to help strengthen a child's bones, and comes In many different flavours, (though I only have two of them on a regular basis, and are the ones I'm reviewing more or less.) Strawberry, raspberry, apricot and others.

        The pots, which come in either a 6 pack of 50g pots or a 4 pack of 100g , will fit in easily in a lunch box, or if you fancy a snack, as they're tasty and easily eaten, it's a great way to get calcium without chugging milk!

        Taste test time!

        Raspberry: The yoghurt has a runny texture though it's a little thicker as you get to the middle of the pot, the raspberry isn't too strong, but a little bit weak all the same, a sweet taste last a while after though.

        Strawberry: This flavour is much more pronounced, but just as enjoyable, it's got a sweet strawberry tang that kids will definitely enjoy.

        ~~ingredients and nutrition~~

        Fromage Frais, Sugar, water, puree from concentrate (varies to flavour) fructose, concentrated juice (varies to flavour.) Pectin, Guar gum, Xanthan gum, calcium phosphate, modified maize starch, flavourings, lactic acid, vitamin D.

        Per 100g (1 large pot or 2 small pots)

        Energy: 437 KJ
        Protein 6.7g
        Carbohydrates 12.6g
        Fat 2.9g
        Fibre 0.3g
        Sodium 0.04g
        Vitamin D 30% Reccomended daily amount
        Calcium 17% RDA

        ~~Price and availability~~

        Petits filous will be available at all leading super markets, though not certain at smaller ones.

        At Tesco both the 6x50g packs and 4x100g packs are £1.50. (Though often the 6 packs are on offer as buy one get one free.)
        At Asda the 4x100g packs are £1.50 and the 6X50g packs are £1.28

        ~~Conclusion~~

        A tasty way to help get your daily calcium!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Try them, you WILL love them!

        Yoplait Petits Filous Fromage Frais are about as good as it gets in the yogurt world.

        I buy these in 6 packs and what you get is six X 60g pots and the flavours you can choose from are; strawberry, apricot, raspberry, strawberry and vanilla, peach and strawberry and, blackberry and raspberry, you get two of each flavour in a six pack so effectively three of the mentioned flavours in any one pack.

        A six pack will cost you £1.50 to £1.60 depending where you shop but they can be found on offer in many places with Asda doing a great 2 for £2 on these six packs from time to time.

        The fromage frais is nice and thick and creamy and as these are made with real fruit puree they do not taste at all artificial and the flavours are never too sweet.

        There are no fruit pieces in these which will suit some and not others but for me this is ok and I have to say my grandkids love it too.

        The small 6og pots have 65 calories and the nutritional info per 100g is as follows:

        2.9g of fat
        Of which 1.9g is saturates
        6.4g of protein
        12.7g of carbohydrate

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        great snack for kids and adults

        I started buying these as a weaning food for my children, I only usually buy these when they are on offer at Tesco. The last time I get them they were £1 a pack and you get 6 in a pack so it works out at just less than 20p a portion.

        The thing I like about Petits Filous is you can get them in a small pot size and this is perfect for children as I found the larger ones only got half eaten and then got thrown away so it got wasted. With the smaller sizes there is just enough and if they are still hungry I can give another without waste.

        For older children or if I buy them for myself then you definitely need the bigger pots as 3 big spoonfuls and the pot is empty!

        The packaging is really bright and colourful, each pot has the 'Petits Filous' logo on the front and then a picture of the flavour (either a strawberry or a raspberry)

        On the back there is also a fun picture for kids to look at with a 'Did you know' question.

        On the top of the product is further information about it, the 'goodness guarantee' states that they are suitable for all ages from weaning onwards, they have no artificial colours or sweeteners, no added preservatives, no fruit bits and are gluten free.

        The product I am reviewing is the strawberry and raspberry but they also come in other flavours which include apricot and also deserts such as chocolate and vanilla.

        They smell lovely, as soon as you remove the lid you can smell a strong fruity smell, they are white in colour and as stated have no bits in them so they are a very smooth paste. Their consistency is average, if you tip the pot up it will run out, but very slowly.

        To taste they are lovely they are really easy to swallow so perfect for weaning! The fromage frais is very smooth and is bursting with flavour.

        Each pot contains calcium and vitamin D which is vital for the growth of healthy teeth and bones.

        I think this product is excellent, easy to carry around, tastes great and at £1 a pack I think its well worth the money. Sometimes its difficult to get children to drink milk so these are a great alternative.

        There also nice for me to pinch once in a while!

          Disadvantages

          WHY I LOVE PETITS FILOUS.

          My children are not very keen on yogurts. They always say they hate the runny texture and if im being totally honest im not that keen on the texture of yogurt either.I have tried them with various flavours and brands, but to no avail.

          I have tried to find an alternative to yogurt to add to their packed lunches and also as a small sweet to offer them after their tea. I have tried and tested quite a few brands of fromage frais. However the most well received, delicious of all the fromage frais on the market has got to be petits filous.

          PACKAGING
          The packaging is what first attracted me to this product. The fromage frais that I purchase come in six small 50g pots. The flavours of these pots are strawberry and raspberry.

          The packaging is very attractive and eye catching. on the top of the packaging are pictures of juicy strawberries and raspberry's which is very appealing. What attracted me to the product the most though is the information written on the lids of the pots.

          It claims that these fromage frais are great to maintain stronger bones. Which as a parent is vitally important in providing the best nutritional diet for your child. These petits filous also contain vitamins and calcium.. This information is also clearly written on the top of the pots.

          One novelty aspect regarding the packaging, which my children love, is on each individual pot there is a little fun fact. This fact is also backed up by a fun illustration. My children love finding these facts on the pots. They then have great pleasure in telling me the fact. for which I reply gosh your clever. Its just a bit of fun, but it is in turn learning them some interesting snip bits of information.

          One such example of a fun fact is did you know that the smallest bone in the ear is the size of half a grain of rice?

          Also provided on the packaging is all nutritional information and dietary advice regarding vegetarians. This information is printed clearly and in a very easy to understand manner.

          THE TASTE
          The taste of these petits filous are extremely creamy and delicious. You can immediately taste the strawberry or raspberry flavour. However neither flavours are too strong or overpowering.

          The sweetness of these fromage frais are just right. They are not overly sweet but they are certainly not sour or tart on your taste buds. The raspberry flavour is definitely sweeter than the strawberry. That is why the raspberry flavour always gets eaten first in my house!

          The creamy consistency of these petitis filous are just indulgent. They have a thick and delicious texture and this just adds to the eating experience. They almost taste too good too be nutritionally good for you. Also the pots are just big enough to provide an adequate portion.

          Another thing that is worth a mention. Is these petits filous are suitable for babies from the ages of 4-6 months onwards. Which is a great way to supplement your babies dietary needs with good nutritional calcium packed goodness.

          I think these petits filous are excellent value for money. the prices average around £1.80 for 6 pots. There are cheaper alternative fromage frias out there, But I have to say I would go for these petits filous every time as they are so delicious and well produced.
          They are a real favourite in our house.

          USEFUL FACTS
          * Suitable for all ages from 4-6 months onwards
          *Calcium and vitamin d rich for strong bones.
          *No artificial colours or sweeteners.
          *No added preservatives.
          *Suitable for vegetarians
          *No fruit bits.
          *Gluten free.
          * Recyclable packaging.

          Petits Filous are manufactured by yoplait.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Healthy, creamy yoghurt pots that are small but delicious :o)

          I used to eat these when I was a child, and recently bought some when I noticed them on offer. I tend to eat Muller Light when I'm in a yoghurty mood, but find them to be quite large to eat during the day. These, however, are tiny in comparison, but they're thick and creamy, and make a perfect snack.

          Petit Filous is often advertised on the tele, with the targeted audience being children. They promote the health benefits in the yoghurt, in particular the calcium content needed for 'healthy teeth and bones'.

          I trust the brand to be reliable and product good quality products, and these are just that. Since Petit Filous was first released, they've become very popular and the range has expanded slightly to include: The regular pots of strawberry & apricot, and strawberry & raspberry. There are also larger versions of these available in packs of 4, as well as 'little desserts' and layered pots variations.

          I bought the strawberry and apricot yoghurts, which are sold as a pack of 6 and cost around £1.49 (Tesco). There are often offers on these, so it's good to keep an eye out for those, just bear in mind the use-by date will probably be 3 - 4 weeks after purchase.

          Each pot weighs 50g and looks very small, especially when compared to more 'adult' versions of yoghurts such as Muller. Being small, however, means they're a good size for a snack and are great for lunchboxes.

          These yoghurts, as advertised, have the health benefits of vitamins and calcium. Vitamin D, for example, helps your body to absorb calcium, which is why they're so beneficial for children. They contain no artificial colours or sweeteners, nor do they have any added preservatives (or gluten), which is always good to know.

          I used to hate bits of fruit in yoghurts, and still do normally, so I really like these as they're smooth. The first thing I noticed about these in comparison to Muller Light for example, was the thickness. The yoghurt is creamy and if you give it a little stir, you'll notice it wont run off your spoon. But neither is it 'gloopy', it's just thick and smooth.

          The taste isn't too sweet but it's fruity, with no tangy aftertaste. There's nothing that stands out for me as being something that could be particularly disliked, so it's definitely worth trying them or tempting your children into eating something delicious and healthy.

          Per two pots (100g) there are 104 calories and 2.9g of fat, so they're a light treat. I don't have a particularly big appetite during the day, so just one pot is enough for me to enjoy something fruity and yummy (even if I do feel like a kid eating these with a teaspoon!), but obviously if you're frequently eating 2 pots a day the costs can add up.

          I would definitely recommend these, both because they're delicious and healthy, and because I can't think of anything negative to say about them :o)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Ideal for kids and adults!

            Petits Filous is made by Yoplait and is a fromage frais. It tastes very similar to yogurt (though seems a bit thicker), however 'fromage frais' actually means 'fresh cheese'.

            Petits Filous is smooth and creamy and has no fruity bits in it, which makes it ideal for children and fussy adults! Other bonuses include it being suitable for vegetarians and being gluten free. It contains no artificial colours, sweeteners or added preservatives, but does contain calcium and vitamin D (for strong bones!).

            I often go for the little 60g pots (aimed at little kids) which come in a pack of 6, rather than the bigger 100g pots in packs of 6... My original reason for this was because I'm lactose intolerant I really shouldn't be eating fromage frais, but one of these little pots wouldn't do me any harm. However, I actually break away 2 little pots from the pack and eat 1 Apricot flavoured Petits Filous followed by a Strawberry flavoured Petits Filous. If I bought the bigger pots, I'd be stuck with having just 1 flavour at a time, but with 2 of these little pots I can have 2 flavours! Even my friend thought it was a genius idea when I mentioned it!

            I love the strawberry and peach flavoured ones, but I have also see them in raspberry and strawberry flavours (though I don't like the raspberry ones).

            The little pots have "Did you know" facts on them such as "Did you know Dutch people are known to be the tallest people in Europe?" and "Did you know food takes 7 seconds to go from your mouth to the stomach!", as well as things such as their "Goodness Guarantee" or information about "Stronger Bones". So Petits Filous isn't just delicious, it's informative too!

            I don't big the bigger pots so can't comment on their price, but the pack of 60g pots usually cost around £1.60 for a pack of 6 in my local supermarket, but can sometimes be found on offer for £1 a pack.

              Disadvantages

              A tasty treat for adults and children alike

              I wouldn't be sat here writing this review were it not for the fact that Petits Filous are currently on offer in Sainsbury's at 75 pence for 6. Despite the French translation of 'Petits Filous' into 'Little Rascals', I am neither little, nor a rascal, and yet I still find these little pots great.

              Nutritionally, they come in at around 62 calories for a pot of 60 grams. Of these calories, 25% come from fat, 48% from carbs, and 27% from protein. This tots up to around 3% of 2,000 calorie diet in fat, 6% in saturated fat, 3% in total carbohydrate, and importantly, 18.5% of your recommended daily calcium intake. Other nuggets of goodness come in the form of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Iron.

              A good bonus is that they are completely devoid of e-numbers, and whilst I don't (yet) have children, I wouldn't have any qualms about feeding them these tubs of goodness. That, realistically, is the ultimate test. If they're good enough for your children, they're good enough full stop.

              As an adult reviewing the product, I can't justify giving 5 stars because they're just so little; two teaspoons full and it's gone. Alas, they're not really aimed at adults, and that does have the bonus of keeping the calories down. In short, a tasty treat that is pretty healthy as far as these things go.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Children and babies love these

              My son Reed, now aged two, has been enjoying these pretty much every day since he was about 6 months old. He is definitely in love with petits filous fromage frais.

              Petits filous are small pots of thick creamy yogurt, with fruit puree to flavour them. Full of goodness and energy that all small children need. They have no little fruit bits in and are completely smooth which is of course great for feeding babies who can't have, and often don't like lumpy bits in food. They're also a good source of calcium and vitamin d, important for growing children's bones.

              They are available in 6 packs of 60g pots (ickle ones) ideal for small children. Also in a more adult sized 4 pack of 100g pots. To be fair, my son will now eat two of the small pots or a whole large pot as he enjoys it that much. I love these too but as they're full fat, I have to try and resist eating them myself! The flavours come in strawberry and apricot packs, or strawberry and raspberry. My favourite is the raspberry flavour it seems most intensely fruity of them all. They also come as little desserts, a 6 pack of vanilla and chocolate. Of course Reed loves the chocolate, especially getting it all over his face.

              At £1.58 a pack of 6, they are quite expensive. So, I sometimes buy other brands if petits filous aren't on offer. However, at the moment they are 75p a pack in sainsburys, so suffice to say I will be stocking up!

              Petits filous do contain a lot of sugar unfortunately, but combined with the health benefits of the calcium and protein I can overlook this. It's not a hit of pure sugar that has him bouncing off the walls, and young children need energy from their food to keep them going.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Great for everyone

                I love Petits Filous and when I saw them on offer, half price at Sainsburys I had to buy a pack..or two!
                I paid 79p for a pack of these little pots of fromage frais.

                The pack I bought consists of 6 x 60g pots. The flavours in my pack were 3 x Strawberry and 3 x Raspberry, they also do peach (which is my favourite) but they didn't have any left in stock : (
                The pots are tiny as they are made for children and I usually eat two at a time, a mix of flavours if possible and have one spoon of one then one of the other. Yum.
                You need to use a little spoon so it will fit in the mini pot but still you'll only get about 5 spoonfuls out of one so they don't last very long.

                ~Strawberry:
                A really sweet taste, very fruity and a definite taste of strawberry, you can tell there's no artificial flavouring just real fruit flavour. My favourite flavour of the two in this pack.

                ~Raspberry:
                Again a fruity taste, this one isn't as sweet and has that tart tang that fresh raspberries have. Quite a bite to it but still really tasty, I don't know if fussy kids would enjoy this as much as the strawberry flavour.

                The fromage frais itself is really creamy and thick, a great consistency.


                ~The Petits Filous Goodness Guarantee:
                * Suitable for any age from 4 months
                * Source of Calcium
                * Source of Vitamin D
                * No artificial colours or sweeteners
                * No added preservatives
                * Suitable for vegetarians
                * No fruit bits
                * Gluten free


                ~1 of your 3 a day:
                Everyone knows about your recommended 5 a day of fruit and vegetables but not a lot know you need 3 portions of calcium a day too. Two of these little pots contain one portion of your recommended calcium intake.


                ~Packaging:
                The packaging is great for kids as well as the dinky size, some of the pots have fun facts related to calcium and bones such as 'did you know your face is made up of 14 bones'. The other pots contain info on the nutritional values, calcium intake, vitamin D and ingredients.
                The design on the packaging is very simple with the Petits Filous branding and then a picture of either a Strawberry or Raspberry on a pale pink, lilac and white background so quite girly really!


                ~Nutritional Info:
                Each serving, 120g (2 little pots) contains
                36% of your RDA of Vitamin D
                37% of your RDA of Calcium
                125 calories
                14.9g of sugar
                3.5g of fat

                So they are a healthy snack, the sugar is not added sugar but naturally occurring sugars in the fruit, there are no artificial sweeteners either.
                125 calories isn't bad at all for 2 little yoghurts and only 3.5g of fat is a good amount for a dairy product.


                Great for kids and us big people alike! Good if you just want a little snack though I don't think one will ever be enough for me.
                Kids will like that they're smooth with no bits and parents will be content knowing they contain no nasty stuff!




                Petits Filous are made in France for: Yoplait Dairy Crest, Telford

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Perfect for little ones

                  I initially bought a pack of Petit Filous fromage frais for my baby son during the summer. I was looking for a healthy snack to pop in the fridge that would be nice and cool in the heat. I also found that cold snacks helped to soothe his teething gums.

                  My son fully approved. He truly adores these little pots of fromage frais.

                  Petit Filous fromage frais are in packs of 6 tubs, each containing 60g. They are suitable for children from 4-6 months of age. Tesco currently stock this product at £1.51 per pack with a buy one get one free offer in place.

                  Just one daily serving will provide at least a third of the daily UK calcium needs for a child up to 10 years of age. It is free from artificial colours, sweeteners, gluten and suitable for vegetarians.

                  I would most certainly recommend this product as a healthy snack or desert for your children.
