Kid Chef Melon Ball Salad

IMG_3601

In the summer, kids can make an inviting organic melon ball salad for a snack, outdoor meal, or party treat. Thousands of years ago kids in Africa were enjoying watermelons. Watermelons are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and lycopene for a healthy cardiovascular system. Cantaloupe contains a broad spectrum of nutrients and is rich in beta-carotene. Kids can grow melons in their organic raised bed garden or get in season organic melons at their local Farmers Market. Honeydew melon is also rich in nutrients and is a pretty green color to make a rainbow melon ball salad with the red watermelon and orange cantaloupe. Small kids can ask an adult to cut the melons in half. Using a 2 inch cookie scoop, kids find it fun to make balls of melon. Kids can refill the scooped out watermelon skin with the melon balls for a colorful display.
