Why we love Fruit Bowl


Fruit Bowl are all about making sure the snacks that end up in little hands are packed with fruity goodness, and not an ounce of anything else. That’s one reason they are made right here in Britain – always have, always will. What’s more, mums and dads can see exactly what they’re putting in lunchboxes for school time tummy rumbles, just by reading the ingredients list.

We know it isn’t always easy to get fruit into your kids’ diet, especially when you’re out and about. That’s where Fruit Bowl’s irresistible snacks come in. To help make eating fruit easier (and with less mess and waste) they’ve put together a tasty range of goodies bursting with flavourful fruitiness. Individually wrapped portions are perfect between meals and you can take them anywhere – all of their snacks are so fruity, they even count as one of your five a day, helping kids understand that healthy eating now tastes better than ever.

You can find Fruit Bowl products in the Home Baking aisle at all major retailers and on Fruit Bowl website.

Wild Explorers – Five lessons we can learn about exploring from animals


We already know that our canine pals are the perfect companions on a Treasure Trail with these five tell-tail signs that your dog is a top explorer.

But, our four-legged friends aren’t the only ones who can teach us a thing or two about avoiding enemy agents, tracking down the treasure and examining the evidence! Delve into the world of wild explorers to really hone your treasure-seeking skills with tips from the pros.


Five lessons we can learn about exploring from animals


1. Follow your instincts


Sometimes, when out searching for clues and answers, you just have to go with your gut! Hawks are known for their strong instincts. They know where to go to give themselves the best chance of finding good prey. Plus, they know instinctively the best time to swoop to ensure they grab their prize! We can also learn from their circling technique, scanning the ground below for clues to where their next meal will come from.

So next time you’re stuck on a clue or not sure which way to go, survey the wider area in case you missed something, and go with your gut instinct to hone in on that all-important answer!


Follow your instinct like a hawk


2. Work hard – don’t give up!


When you’re stuck on a super sneaky clue, it’s important to keep trying and not give up! Busy bees don’t just work hard to maintain their hive and look after their queen; they also work seamlessly as a team. Pull your whole squad together to make the tricky clues a lot easier to crack.


Work hard like a bee


3. Take your time


Slow and steady wins the race! Just like a tortoise and their other slow pals – sloths, snails and starfish – you don’t want to rush ahead when you’re exploring. If you sprint onwards in search of your next clue, you may slip straight past it… or past the muddy footprints of rival treasure seekers! Slow down and take your time to fully observe your surroundings and discover tucked-away treasures or super sneaky clues.


Take your time like a tortoise


4. Never forget


An elephant never forgets, and neither does a goldfish (despite the rumours)! You never know when something you’ve spotted during your expedition may prove useful, so it’s important to pay attention and commit anything you notice to memory. Or, tap into your detective training and make notes as you go to ensure anything important is on hand to help you crack the case.


Never forget like an elephant


5. Don’t forget to play!


Dolphins love to play. They jump and spin in the air and have been known to surf the waves too! We’re not suggesting jumping or surfing will help you find any clues, but we can still learn a lot from dolphins. So next time you and your team are stuck on a clue, remember that your number one aim is to have fun! Pop into a playground (kids only!), or have a drink stop to take a break from searching, then return to your mission, quest, or investigation invigorated and ready to solve those final clues!


Play like a dolphin - wild explorers

Practice your wild explorer skills for real!


Now that you’ve picked up some new adventuring skills from a bunch of wild explorers, it’s time to take flight and sink your claws into a Treasure Trail!

Don’t ruffle any feathers in your hunt for the deactivation code on a spy mission Trail – vanish into the surroundings like a chameleon to avoid being caught by enemy agents. Use your eagle-eyed vision to monitor your surroundings as you sniff out the evidence on a detective mission, and use the balance of a cat to avoid triggering booby traps on a treasure hunt.

All you need for a day full of excitement and adventure is a curious mind and a Treasure Trail! Where will your next journey into the wild take you?
