Cantaloupe is a delicious and sweet fruit frequently bought and enjoyed once spring and summer roll around. Due to high water content, this melon is ideal to dig into on a sunny day. In addition to being a healthy snack, this juicy fruit offers a variety of health benefits. A cup of cantaloupe is only 53 calories! This light snack is filled with vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber.
Vitamins A and C help maintain healthy hair, skin and vision as well as supporting a healthy immune system. Cantaloupe is said to help stress and anxiety due to the potassium it contains.
