In recent times, my boys have got even more fussy with their food, I’m sure that it’s all part of growing up and I’m told loads by the youngest, ‘You are not the boss of me!’ Well Sonny Jim, I think I may just well be, but I’m not going to argue that with him!!
Whilst I include fruit in the packed lunches, it’s rarely eaten, so what do you do. What do you do? When the boys get home from school now, we put down a plate of fruit, all different kinds and they get a small bamboo skewer and they have to make their own fruit kebabs. I know it’s a bit of a chore to get ready, but it really does work!
Last week we were given the chance to try Chilean easy peeler clementines and mandarins (now in season) and boy they have gone down a treat – In fact out of all of the ones we received in this box, I only got 1!
These little beauties are packed with goodness, not only full of vitamin C but also great for hydration and a rich source of fibre, calcium and magnesium and guess what, Buddy even ate the one I put in his packed lunch – I have to say I told him that it was an easy peeler in advance and asked him to try it – brilliant – we have a break through 🙂
The market for Chilean easy peelers is growing and it’s not surprising, they really are easy to peel and taste awesome (In the words of my little ones!)
Here are some additional tips on Chilean Easy Peelers:
- They really are easy peelers so the children can manage them themselves – Mine needed a little bit of coaxing, but now they do believe me 🙂
- We all know we need to drink more water, but eating foods that have a large water content like these Chilean Easy Peelers can help keep the levels tip top – let’s face it, we are not there to encourage them to drink water, so every little helps
- They are low in calories and packed full of vitamins and minerals
- They can even be popped in their pocket for an on the go snack to keep them from getting hungry or thirsty, I know mine are needing something when they get to the school gates after their near mile scoot to school
