Children accompanied by adults

Niños acompañado de adultos is what I saw written and I thought it seemed wrong. I would use con. Would I be wrong?

"Niños acompañados de adultos" is correct, Poli. "De" is the usual preposition for this verb.

When I see "acompañado con" is rather for talking about things, not people:

...for example, when describing food:
- El filete viene acompañado con puré de papas y verduras al vapor.
- Acompañe su plato favorito con una cerveza.
- El pastel se sirve acompañado con una taza de chocolate caliente.
- Fresca selección de lechugas acompañadas con aderezo de cilantro.

...also when talking about music:
- El piano acompañado con un cuarteto de cuerdas suena maravilloso.
- El cantante sólo está acompañado con su guitarra.

...and other cases:
- Los mensajes de amenaza venían acompañados con fotos de su familia.
- Se prevén vientos fuertes acompañados con lluvias torrenciales.
- Las emisiones del volcán estuvieron acompañadas con vapor de agua y cenizas.


In all these cases, you could use "de" instead of "con", and it wouldn't sound strange. But if you use "con" when talking about people, I do find it weird.
