These Clementine Pumpkins are a fun and healthy Halloween snacks for kids!
It’s October now so officially time to start thinking about Halloween! Yay!
I know many parents dread Halloween as the shops are full of sugar laden sweets and chocolate for weeks on end but there are still lots of ways we can have fun with the kids using healthy ingredients…. starting with these Clementine Pumpkins!
Clementines are abundant at this time of year. Naturally very sweet but low in sugar they make the perfect snack for kids.
They are super portable making them fantastic to have in your bag or to pop in a child’s lunchbox. Nutritionally clementines are a brilliant source of Vitamin C, with just one clementine providing a full RDA of Vitamin C for a child up to 8 years of age (or two clementines for a child aged 9 and over).
To make eating clementines a little more fun get the kids to draw some cute pumpkin faces with a black marker. Or surprise your children by popping one into their lunchbox. It’s sure to get a giggle at lunch time!
