Wonderful Halos Mandarin Oranges

Press Sample

We’ve been toeing around the issue for months…and by months, I mean M-O-N-T-H-S.  Eating clean.  Avoiding all things processed, all things white (goodbye, Italian bread…), and all things with sugar in the ingredient list.  The reason I’ve been him-hawing rather than jumping straight into this clean lifestyle is that 1) cutting out everything listed above cuts out nearly all my favorite foods, 2) cutting out all processed foods makes it seem way more complicated to feed my kids things they’ll actually eat, and 3) buying all things fresh is expensive!!

But we did it.  We took the plunge and committed to eating all of our meals clean (although my kids’ afternoon snacks still consist of fruit snacks and pre-packaged granola bars), and to make it work on our shoestring budget.  It’s been a worthwhile challenge, but I’ll save tips and tricks for eating clean on a budget for another post!

About a month into our journey, once I’d realized it was difficult to buy all fresh fruits and veggies on the cheap, I was asked to review Wonderful Halos Mandarin oranges.  Perfect timing since my kids (and I, after my workouts) were getting really tired of bananas and apples.  We love these little oranges!

They’re the perfect size for a quick, healthy little snack, and they’re the perfect sweetness so that those pesky sweet cravings aren’t a problem.  And, added benefit, the size of the pieces is perfect for my toddler, who only wants to eat what her big sisters eat!

Kid tested, mother approved, clean eating friendly: Halo Mandarin Oranges.

Wonderful Halos pure goodness extends far beyond the taste of these sweet mandarins! Recently, Wonderful Halos took their pure goodness message to schools across America by providing nutritious food to children through the Feeding America BackPack program. Feeding America is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks and the Feeding America BackPack Program that supplies children the healthy food they need to get them through the weekend. Bags of food are assembled at more than 150 local food banks and distributed to nearly 230,000 children every year.

About Abby

Hey, all! My name is Abby. I am thirty years old and I live near St. Louis with my amazing family: my hot husband, and my three lovely daughters K (9 years), M (7 years), and A (2 yrs). I have the privilege of staying at home with my three girls and I wouldn’t change it for the world! Some of our hobbies include, but are not limited to: coloring, taking nature walks where we pick up every. single. bug. and blow every. single. dandelion. (No really- to live the carefree life of a child!), and play dress-up. My husband and I are youth pastors at our church, and I am currently training for my first half marathon! Yikes!


  1. We like to eat them peeled as an afternoon snack. What a healthy and delicious treat!

    We like to eat them straight outta the wrapper (i.e. rind) for a sweet snack!

    We like to just peel and eat them.

  5. Denise L says:

    My son and I like to eat them straight from the peel, but my husband has been known to throw them in a salad. Either way, they’re delicious.
