My kids love watermelon, and it’s a great healthy snack option for kids. As long as it is in season you’ll find watermelon in our fridge. After you’ve eaten your share of good ole plain watermelon slices, try these delicious watermelon recipes. If you have finicky little ones like mine who don’t like to eat the watermelon if it is too mushy, then the drink recipes are a perfect way to finish off those last bits of watermelon. Then you’ll be sure no watermelon is wasted!
