Baby Recipe Corner

Melons, Melons, Melons

Tonight we decided to try out some fruits from the melon family.  My baby has always loved her fruits so it’s not a surprise that she smashed dinner tonight! 🙂  Last week when we went to the store we picked up some fresh waterlmelon, fresh cantaloupe and fresh honey dew.

The Perks

Watermelons– these tasty morsels are over 90% water!  Most people don’t know that they have vitamin A,B and C  in them!  And on top of that they have antioxidants!

Cantaloupe–  are packed with antioxidants as well!  They also have anti inflammatory phytonutrients!

Honey Dew– they have very high potassium levels and high water content!  These tasty treats even repair skin tissue since they are high in copper and vitamin C!

So now that you’ve heard all the health benefits, let me tell you how easy it is to prepare!  We literally just cut our fruits up into little bite size pieces and toss together.  I pre-store meals, so I usually pack my melons into snack containers right away and now I have an easy grab and go meals!  My girl really liked all of the melons but I would say her favorite was the honey dew!  She had a much more delighted look on her face when she tried it for the first time 🙂
