I stumbled onto this image the other day and it made me chuckle, so I figured I’d share it here on the watermelon blog. It’s either a great Photoshop effort or the world’s strongest baby. While there’s a 99 percent chance that it’s just clever photo editing, I prefer to believe that it’s real.

Yeah sure, an eight-pound watermelon is easy for an adult to toss around, but for a little guy (girl?) like this one, it’s no easy feat. And just imagine how strong this baby will be when he’s two or three years old. Today, he’s hoisting watermelons, tomorrow he’ll be giving piggy back rides to his dad.

It’s actually kind of scary when you think about it. I have a hard enough time wrangling my three-year-old year when she’s throwing a tantrum. If you’re the parent of a The World’s Strongest Toddler, forget about it.

Feel free to leave a comment with your best caption for this photo. And remember, all of the comments left on the blog this month will be entered to win our May prize – a $50 Chili’s gift card to taste test Chili’s watermelon drink lineup. Good luck!

This month’s quote might sound pretty obvious at first – keeping good food in your fridge means you’ll eat good food – but there’s a deeper meaning hiding just under the surface.

What it really means is that you can’t eat well if you don’t have the ingredients on hand to support that diet. (Eating “well” can mean eating healthily, eating deliciously, or both!)  I’ve added watermelon to the quote because, quite simply, you can’t add more watermelon to your diet if you don’t have more watermelon in your fridge.

That’s especially true for me. When I have watermelon at home, I eat it all the time. I’ll have a wedge or two as a snack before dinner. I’ll have some chunks in a bowl for breakfast. I’ll even grill a slice to put on a burger. But when that watermelon runs out, and I’m a few days away from our next trip to the grocery store, guess what happens? That’s right, all those watermelon snacking opportunities disappear.

So what’s the lesson? Keep watermelon in your fridge and you’ll have great snacks on hand at all times!
