Britmums #ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge

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.

    I ADORE your map table cloth! Everyone seems to have been sent a covering letter with their chilean easy peelers – mine didn’t – hope there wasn’t anything crucial on there. So true how easily we can end up doing things for them even when they get to an age they can do it themselves! I’m guilty of brushing the kids teeth to make sure they brush properly x

      Thank you. The map is very educational at mealtimes. The boys often spontaneously start talking about various countries. Teeth brushing is maybe something I need to get involved in as they seem to exit the bathroom incredibly quickly
