Yeo Valley Organic offers primary schools a chance to win a forest experience
Yeo Valley Organic is giving primary schools the chance to win a forest school experience for its pupils and an entire term’s supply of Yeo Valley Organic Yogurt as part of a new outdoorsy initiative Yeo Explore!

The competition is ‘inspired’ by the Somerset organic dairy supplier’s passion to empower people to make good choices every day in what they eat and what they do. Yeo Explore! focuses on encouraging children to ‘eat well and immerse themselves in the wonders of nature to help them flourish’.  

The forest school experience will include a mini beast hunt, guided walks and den building. Every primary school that enters will receive a free seasonal forest finds handout that can be used in outdoor lessons.

Craig Dillon, head of sales, wholesale and foodservice at Yeo Valley Organic, said: “I’m delighted that we can support schools – and parents - through Yeo Explore!

“Outdoor learning offers so many benefits for pupils, it boosts their development, supports good mental health and wellbeing, as well as strengthens their connection with nature, and makes learning more fun and inclusive. As a dedicated school partner, we hope as many pupils as possible will benefit in the long term from exploring the wonderful outdoors.

The competition is open now at Primary school caterers need to enter by the 25th March 2024 and explain in no more than 150 words what it would mean to win.
