Watermelon: the Best Way to Get Your Kids Some VitaminsJan 16, 2023
While kids want great taste, you want to give them the vitamins, minerals and fiber their growing bodies need. Serve them some watermelon and you can both be happy.
Watermelon is a fun, nutritious way to make sure active kids don't get dehydrated because it's 92% water.
A two-cup serving of watermelon is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C, and it provides 7% of the recommended daily value of potassium, with only 80 calories.
Watermelon is fat-free and also contains fiber. Its beautiful red color comes from all natural lycopene, an antioxidant that can help to keep your kids' bodies healthy.
Watermelon can be eaten at any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it's a wonderful snack for the whole family. Delicious on its own, watermelon is a fantastic ingredient in recipes, too. Previously just a summertime treat, tasty watermelon is now available year-round.
A watermelon carving makes a great addition to a kids' party buffet, and the birthday boy or girl can help make it. The salad inside can be as simple as a mixture of blueberries, seedless green grapes and balls of watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon. It's colorful and kids love it.
It’s no secret our melanated beings have always loved watermelon and now you know exactly why!
