National Watermelon Day

I think this is my favourite 'funny' National Day that I've come across so far this year - although that probably isn't saying much since I didn't find out about all these fun days until about 7/8 weeks back. 

I love watermelons, growing up they were never in my house, so I actually didn't try them until I was on holiday one year with my partner. We had eaten so much rubbish, I was feeling so bloated and one of the chefs recommended watermelon - it helps with heat bloating too! I was a bit wary, if you know me, you'll know certain textures make me gag just by looking at them, never mind trying them, but I gave it a go... I never looked back!! 

Now, I love seeing online all the crazy recipes people use with watermelons and love trying them out - especially now it's Summer! There is definitely no coincidence that National Watermelon Day has fallen in the Summer! 

We all know how hard it can be to convince kiddos to try something new, so today is going to be a great day to try and encourage them to try Watermelon - I mean, the day is totally about watermelons! If they don't fancy trying it in the form of just a slice of watermelon, check out the recipes below to find other ways for them to try it!

Happy Watermelon Day!
