Review: Actimel Acti Kids

Actimel Yoga Challenge

We recently went along to a great Actimel event in London. We had a day of smoothie making and doing yoga with the kids. We left feeling stretched and invigorated and ready to complete the challenge they had set us.

I love a challenge and so for the past week we have been doing yoga every morning to help prepare Little G mentally for school. It has been so much fun, a great way to spend quality time together and gently introduce a daily exercise routine.

We were given 10 poses to perform ,choosing 2 per day, each has a name to help the child relate to the shapes. If you fancy giving them a go too then here they are, as modelled by Little G herself!

Once we are finished she has an Actimel kids drink, which she loves. She has only just started having dairy products and loves them! It is like she is catching up on 4 years of not being able to have it- she has to build up her calcium!

Have you tried yoga with your kids?

    Brilliant! I’ll give it a bash with Finn but I’m not sure he will stay still long enough!

    I love this post! Little G has such great pose. Ethan will properly be able to stand for like 5 mins max. I really like your photoshop skills too. Particularly the Giraffe one. Little G looks great! 🙂 #Kidscorner
