While kids want great taste, you want to give them the vitamins, minerals and fiber their growing bodies need. Serve watermelon and you can both be happy.

Watermelon is a fun, nutritious way to make sure active kids don’t get dehydrated; it’s 92 percent water.

A two-cup serving of watermelon is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C, and it provides 7 percent 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 keep kids’ bodies healthy.

Watermelon can be eaten as a between meal snack for the whole family.

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. It’s colorful and kids love it.

But lets not forget the other great fruits from the tropics. They are only around a short time. But if you have never eaten them give them a try as they are full of great vitamins.

Remember fruits should be eaten alone and generally at least two hours after a meal.

Something to just have fun with and make sure you use organic substances.
