O2 Fitness Food of the Week: Clementines

Clementines are a convenient and nutritious snack.  With their small size, these juicy fruits can be carried easily in a lunch bag, backpack, purse or briefcase.  They are very easy to peel, are seedless and tend to have less acid than oranges.  A whole clementine contains just 35 calories and is loaded with vitamin C (provides 60% of your daily need).  In addition to vitamin C, this little fruit contains a variety of other vitamins and minerals.
