The back to school season brings back the everyday mission of supplying the children with healthy lunch box items they are surely going to eat. During the holidays and half terms it’s fairly easy to monitor what they eat and how much. But once they are back in school, we want to make sure that they eat their packed lunch and that lunch is healthy.
Chilean Easy Peelers are great for lunch boxes. They are healthy: rich in vitamin C, potassium, folate, and calcium. They contain lots of water which makes them perfect for busy days when they just forget to drink enough water. They are mum-friendly: just wipe them and pop them into the lunch box.
What we thought:
According to our tests, we can say that they are tastier than other citrus fruits: we have found them sweet and just a subtle tangy taste as opposed to orange. They are also easy to peel! No wonder they are called Easy Peelers. My 3 year old has found it a little fiddly initially, but mastered it soon.
What we also wanted to add is that they are great as weaning food and as a soft fruit what a very small toddler can eat. My 16 months old little girl enjoyed them (and her cuddly sea otter too!).
Chilean Easy Peelers are available in supermarket shelves from September to November, so make the most of them now.
