All kinds of melons are among the most popular fruits of the summer. Melons are full of vitamins and make a perfect snack between main meals.
In fact, the secret of enjoying the health benefits of melons is not eating them as dessert after meals, but as snack between meals to boost digestion and fully metabolize vitamin A abundant in melons. Melons should never be sweetened with sugar or any other sweeteners, or otherwise the body cannot fully metabolize the vitamins and minerals.
The only problem associated with melons is that is that they may harbor bacteria on their skin, which may get into the flesh when the fruit is sliced, and cause digestion disorders and inflammation of the intestines, especially in children with a weakened immune system.
Therefore, doctors advise that the skin of any kind of melon should be washed thoroughly before the fruit is sliced.
