Zoom-in on nature: photography competition for kids

We’ve teamed up with family travel website Havealovelytime.com to run a children’s nature photography competition aimed at encouraging young people’s appreciation of the natural world around them, wherever they are.

The budding young photographer behind the winning picture will win a four night family stay at Tipi West overlooking Aberporth Bay on the beautiful Ceredigion coast in West Wales. They will also receive a half day photography lesson and a hamper of strawberry, chocolate and banana flavoured Daioni!

This competition is open to children aged between four and 16 years, and will be judged in three age categories: 4-8 years, 9-12 years and 13-16 years.  There will be one overall winner and three runner-up prizes of a month’s supply of Daioni.

To enter, youngsters need simply take a photo of something in nature that’s captured their imagination and email it to us at helen@trioni.com.  Photos must be submitted as Jpeg files and be 300DPI or 1-5MB in size.  All entries must be received by 31 March 2012. Terms and conditions apply.

Terms and Conditions

The overall prize of a four night stay in a Tipi at Tipi West is limited to eight people.  It must be taken between 16 April 2011 and 31 August 2013, excluding all weekends.  There is no cash alternative to the prize and accommodation is subject to availability.  For more information Tipi West visit www.teepeewest.co.uk   



Beat back-to-school blues with a new lunchbox treat

As kids go back to school this September, a healthy lunch is key to boosting energy and brainpower.  Parents looking for tasty lunchbox treats which are also full of goodness can have their work cut out for them, but Daioni, the UK’s first organic naturally-flavoured milk drink, is sure to be a hit with the whole family!

Daioni comes in three delicious flavours, chocolate, banana and strawberry, and is available in handy 250ml snack-sized cartons. The fact that it doesn’t need to be kept refrigerated makes it perfect for lunchboxes and school bags.   

“Daioni is produced from nutritious semi-skimmed organic milk from our Pembrokeshire farm,” explains, Laurence Harris, the farmer behind the brand. “The benefits of calcium for kids are well known and this is a fun way to pack some added goodness into lunchtime! There’s a Daioni flavour for everyone and each one is low in fat and sugar, and free from any added nasties!”  

Daioni is available to buy online from www.ocado.com and www.abelandcole.co.uk, in Tesco stores in Wales, and farm shops, delis and health food stores across the whole UK.
