No Added Sugar With Yazoo!

Last weekend the girls and I headed off on another little adventure, this time we visited Bradford on Avon to see the guys at YAZOO ahead of an exciting new product launch. We all know YAZOO it’s one of those brands we grew up with, I remember heading down to the shops on a Saturday morning for a milk shake and a bag of pick and mix.

In a day where we are all a lot more health conscious and even more conscious of the foods and drinks we give to our children YAZOO have launched there new no added sugar range of milkshakes. So we were there to find out what YAZOO No Added Sugar are all about and discover how it was going to save our snack times!

YAZOO no added sugar

Enjoying a banana YAZOO no added sugar

The clear message is obviously there is no added sugar in the drink and while the majority of children’s drinks now claim that YAZOO really set themselves apart  with also using no artificial sweetener or colours, the only sugar in YAZOO is that which is naturally found in milk.
YAZOO No Added Sugar is available in 3 delicious flavours; toffee, strawberry and my own favourite banana, it’s also rich in calcium and protein as well as containing vitamin B2. For me drinks aren’t always about what they don’t have in but more what the do contain so seeing vitamins, calcium and protein in there is a big plus point for me – kids are such fussy eaters I feel completely smug watching them drink these shakes knowing they’re also getting some goodness! Protein just keeps children feeling fuller for longer making YAZOO No Added Sugar a little god send after school to keep them going until dinner.

teepee fun

I always worry taking the girls to work things that they’ll be bored with in 10 minutes but they had great fun with tons going on, their tasks for the day were to not only drink the milkshakes but also up cycling the empty bottles; we had super heroes, zoo animals even binoculars they love getting creative.

To hear more about YAZOO No Added Sugar I made a little video talking about why they are great for us as a family have a little look and enter the competition below to win some for yourself.

As part of a giveaway I am running for three of you guys to win 24 bottles of Yazoo No Added Sugar (8 of each flavour) we are also giving away a fun craft kit so that the kids can get creative with your finished bottles!

    I really worry about sugar content in snacks. There are lots of products my kids pester me for that I simply won’t buy, due to the massive sugar content

    I always try get them to eat things that have hidden fruit and veg! Sugar is hard to avoid. Sometimes I won’t choose the sugar free version and I would rather them have a bit of sugar than artificial sweeteners. They are not really big sweet and chocolate fans and we only really have them occasionally anway.

    Something she will actually eat, I have brought her a variety of healthy snacks but she doesn’t like the corn, or rice cake snack things. Her favourite tends to be fruit and cheese so I stick to them just cause I know she will eat them, and they wont be wasted. Obviously, its mainly fruit cause too much cheese wouldnt be great, but one cheese based snack a day is ok!

  56. Helen tovell

    Sugar and Salt content. I find its better to get the small bite sized snacks then they are satisfied that they have had what they wanted but its in a quantity that isn’t too bad on content to keep it as a treat rather than a must have.
