Bee Sweet Citrus Pushes Sweetheart Mandarins for Back to School
FOWLER, CA - Bee Sweet Citrus is making moves to promote its Sweetheart Mandarins for the back-to-school season.
Offering a wide array of health benefits and an “undeniably sweet” flavor profile, Sweetheart Mandarins are also easy-to-peel, seedless, and small, making them the perfect back-to-school snack.
“Kids of all ages are sure to love our Sweetheart Mandarins,” Jim Marderosian, Bee Sweet Citrus President, said in a press release. “They’re undeniably sweet and extremely healthy. What’s not to love?”
Marderosian also explained that Sweetheart Mandarins are a healthy alternative to junk food items. One item of fruit provides approximately 80 percent of the recommended daily vitamin C intake, and at least 10 percent of the daily recommended value of fiber, the company states in a press release.
Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents during the past 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Bee Sweet Citrus hopes that by including Sweetheart Mandarins in school lunchboxes, parents can provide their kids with a healthy snack and also curb their sugar cravings.
