Ramadan is here! And while a lot of people are used to fasting for so many days at a stretch, many of us take a while to adjust to the change in meal timings. And especially in the heat, it’s tough to stay hydrated around the time you’re fasting. Here are some food items you could consume before and after your fast, to keep you hydrated during the day. Here they are:

1. Watermelon
