We often stress the importance of hydration. While drinking water is important eating fruit and vegetables can contribute a large amount of water to your diet. Watermelon was a favourite of Shelli’s. Cold watermelon smoothies with a touch of mint were her favourite especially when she had bad mouth ulcers. We would freeze the watermelon and then blend when required.

Watermelon one of the most hydrating foods you can eat with 92% water content and quite low in calories, approximately 46 calories per cup. Over half of that cup, 154-gram serving, is water content. It also has important nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin A and magnesium and some fibre.

Watermelon is now commonly used it salads, drinks or just a refreshening snack. Eating smaller, frequent meals or snacks can be better than facing a large meal.
