“In season November through April, Halos are easy to pack in lunches, great to share at kid’s activities and sporting events, and make a healthy snack choice any time of the day. Not only are they the perfect (healthy) snack to include in your Easter baskets or decorate your Easter table, but they also make for a great addition to family friendly recipes that are great for Easter entertaining! ”
With Mandarins such as Wonderful Halos providing 45 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, they are the perfect snack for kiddos. We decided to shake things up a bit this year, and incorporate them into not only our Easter snacking, but our decor as well.
My kids took these adorable, easy to peel treats and gave them a little bit of Easter flair! Using permanent markers, they drew sweet little rabbit and chick faces on each one of their Wonderful Halos—they didn’t stop there, they even attached ears, created outfits, and one of them even got it’s own little hand made paper basket.
My 11 year old daughter assisted my 2 year old son in this activity, and let me tell you, they had a blast! Between munching on the delicious ( 50 calorie only ) snacks, and getting their crafty groove on, they spent the better part of their afternoon in Halo heaven! We even hid the Halos around the living room for my little guy to find! This was super fun and a lot less of a mess than hiding boiled eggs.
With so many fun activities and ways of incorporating your Wonderful Halos into delicious Easter dishes, they are sure to become an Easter staple around our home…so much healthier than candy and a whole lot less mess than eggs ( and tastier too! ) These naturally sweet beauties definitely should not be forgotten this Easter season!
