Another good source of this nutrient is tomatoes. Watermelons are also a good source of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Don’t tell the kids it’s good for them, though. We don’t want to discourage them from gobbling lots of this great fruit down throughout the summer time. For optimum food value, be sure the watermelon is fully ripe.Watermelon is a great snack for kids.
