Clementines: the ultimate in kid-friendly citrus
'Tis the season for clementines -- those adorable (some might even say darling) seedless mandarin oranges that often come in five-pound boxes. Grab yourself some: not only are they delicious, full of germ-fighting Vitamin C, and festive when piled in a bowl on the table, they're easy for the littlest hands to peel. Plus, unlike navel oranges, they don't squirt juice everywhere while you're trying to separate the sections into edible bites.
(I included a link to a clementine vendor at Amazon for those not familiar with the fruit. However, the price there is prohibitively high -- you can certainly do better at your local grocery. I just picked up a box at Trader Joe's for six bucks.)
