Nutrition and Healthy Eating
We’re heading into summer which means we’re also heading into watermelon eating season! Watermelon is a healthy snack option because it contains Lycopene a “fight-o-chemical” (phytochemical) that helps fight off sickness – but did you know that you don’t just have to eat it off the rind? Try this week’s snack hack for a fun new twist on serving up watermelon!

Watermelon popsicles:

  1. Chop up watermelon into small chunks and puree in the blender
  2. Pour the pureed watermelon into small paper cups (or popsicle molds).
  3. Cover each cup with plastic wrap or foil and insert a popsicle/craft stick (or plastic spoon) through and into the cup.
  4. Freeze until hard.
  5. Optional: add chopped strawberries, pineapple, or grapes to the molds too!
