Happy National Watermelon Day! Watermelon is definitely a summertime favourite around here - keep reading to find out why!
- It's packed full of water, keeping you hydrated & refreshed
- A great source of Vitamin A (helps our eyes & skin stay healthy)
- A great source of Vitamin C (helps our bones, teeth, & skin grow/repair)
- One of the best sources of Lycopene, a pigment that doubles as a powerful antioxidant (may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease & certain cancers)
Overall, watermelon is oh-so-delicious & full of nutrition. Enjoy some today!
