Every year only during CNY we will have melon seeds at home. Of course, we can still purchase it any time of the year, but for some reasons unknown to anyone, we only buy and eat it during CNY.
I did some research on melon seeds. Look what I found…
Nutrients found: Folate, Zinc, Potassium, Manganese, Magnesium, Iron, Copper, Calcium, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B2
Melon Seeds may help with high cholesterol (no wonder I never have problem in this area).
Like father like daughter. Both my girls like to eat 瓜子 too.
If you are wondering where to find all these melon seeds, peanuts, cashew nuts, etc.. You can find it at Chop Chin Seng Enterprises (just a few shops besides Tiong Shian Porridge 長城粥品 @ New Bridge Road).
