Kristin Cavallari Joins Wonderful Halos and Boys & Girls Clubs of America in an Effort to Promote Healthy Snacking in over 4,000 Clubs across the Country

Wonderful Halos Extends Partnership and Donates an Additional
$100,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America for Healthy Lifestyles

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, actress, television personality, designer and philanthropist
Kristin Cavallari helped kick off the second year of a partnership
between Wonderful
California mandarins and Boys
& Girls Clubs of America
. Wonderful Halos – the #1 selling brand
of mandarins in the country that are sweet, seedless and easy-to-peel –
is donating another $100,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America to support
healthy lifestyle programming at Clubs around the country. Funds are
used for health education, sports programming, as well as after school
food, which is often the last meal of the day for some Club kids.
Included in Wonderful Halos’ donation is fresh citrus fruit to supply
Clubs with healthy snack options.

Cavallari, former cast member of mega-popular MTV series “Laguna Beach”
and “The Hills” and author of upcoming book, “Balancing in Heels” due
out in March 2016, joined volunteers at a Boys & Girls Club in New York
City to deliver Wonderful Halos and other healthy foods for a snack time
treat and to host fitness activities to promote the importance of
healthy habits.

“Teaching kids good habits at an early age really sets the foundation
for them for the rest of their lives,” said Cavallari. “For example, I
plan to encourage my little ones to reach for healthy snacks such as
Wonderful Halos in lieu of sugary treats. And now this partnership has
allowed me to promote healthy eating and thinking to a huge network of
youth across the country.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of America is the nation’s premier youth development
organization serving nearly 4 million youth annually. More than 4,100
Club locations have helped develop young minds with the skills and
abilities to become productive citizens. Boys & Girls Clubs of America
works to provide a world-class Club experience for all youth and this
includes teaching how to live a healthy lifestyle along with
demonstrating good character & citizenship and academic success.
Signature Boys & Girls Club programs such as Triple Play, Smart Moves,
Smart Girls and Wanna Play provide opportunities for Club kids to get
active, understand and educate themselves to make smart choices that
impact their health.

“Instilling early and often the foundations of a healthy lifestyle is
key to developing long-term wellness habits that shape successful
adults,” said Jennifer Bateman, Ph.D., national vice president of
health, wellness & gender, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We’re
grateful for partners like Wonderful Halos that support our health and
wellness initiatives. Each day BGCA and Clubs around the country work to
enhance our strategies and drive deeper impact to help Club members
learn and practice healthy habits so they can achieve a great future.”

“Wonderful Halos believe that kids are the catalyst for change in the
household, and they can influence their families to make healthy
choices,” said Adam Cooper, vice president of marketing, Wonderful
Halos. “That’s why we are proud to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs
of America to help make healthy food and resources available to Club
kids. During the first year of our partnership, we directly saw the
positive influence Clubs have on kids’ lives, and so it was natural for
us to continue our partnership through 2016 and to continue to support
their health initiative.”

Consumers will enjoy 2 billion servings of wholesome California
mandarins this season which they can find in the produce aisles of
grocery, mass and club stores now through April (California mandarin
season). They are available in 1-, 3- and 5-pound bags and 5-pound boxes.
