This Thursday 3/7/13 all Boston Public Schools will feature Minneolas for breakfast in celebration of National School Breakfast Week.


What is a Minneola?

– Minneolas are a unique citrus fruit that are seasonally available during the winter months

– Minneolas, also known as Honeybells for their bell-like shape, are a hybrid between a grapefruit and a tangerine

– These citrus fruits are a good source of Dietary Fiber and an excellent source of Folate and Vitamin C

This easy to peel fruit has been well received in 27 schools through the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program this year, so we wanted to make them available to more students!

So come to school on Thursday and try a Minneola for Breakfast!
