Last week Monday was National Watermelon Day. A day to be celebrated in our house, with three children who would happily eat watermelon until it was coming out of their ears!
To help celebrate National Watermelon Day, Zico kindly sent us some goodies, along with samples of their Watermelon Raspberry flavored Zico Premium Coconut Water.
The fruit didn’t last long…
These bits and pieces were purloined by the kids as soon as I’d taken the photo…
And, my 6yo dude modelled the sunglasses for the rest of the day!
I have to admit that we had never had coconut water of any kind before. So, we were excited to try it out.
I didn’t quite know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the light, albeit quite sweet, flavor of the coconut water. The 9yo in particular enjoyed it, and has since been caught sneaking a bottle out of the fridge!
Zico Premium Coconut Water naturally supports hydration, has as much potassium as a banana, contains 5 electrolytes: potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus, and is naturally gluten, fat and cholesterol free.
It’s definitely a tasty alternative to fruit juice and the 9yo is looking forward to trying it out after his next swim team practice. We will have to check out the other flavors too…
As for our National Watermelon Day celebrations, well, I think you can see how much the kids love watermelon!
