An OT’s dream orange

This seems so silly but the OT in me can’t get enough of these little gems for my kids.

Small enough segments for a finger food eater to handle, and a great way to practice bilateral skills!   Obviously the finger food eater is unlikely to be able to discern whether or not to eat the peel or the actual segments but a 2 year old could easily do the job!  I find myself giving a couple to the 3 & 4 year olds to peel while the littlest one devours segments in her high chair.

These things are the tiniest mini-mandarins I’ve ever seen!
