Britmums have challenged bloggers to take the #ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge to celebrate this tasty, convenient fruit as part of the back-to-school season. And as one of the first 50 to sign upto the challenge, I received a free box of these lovely citrus fruits.
The boys have school dinners, but they are always ready for an after-school snack at the end of the day. I like to ensure that this is something healthy and nutritious. And what could be more healthy than a mandarin or clementine.
These certainly lived upto their Easy Peeler name, plus they were pip free. I was surprised when son2 said this was the first time he had ever peeled an orange himself. I think I must be doing too much for him.
And son1 shows us that they are not just for after-school. He enjoyed one late in the evening.
We all agreed that these were really tasty. Also they are full of vitamin C, plus a rich source of fibre, calcium and magnesium, and a great source of water (about 87%) to keep you hydrated. An excellent point as the boys often barely sip at their water bottles. They are in season from now until November. Ideal for lunch boxes.
