#8 of 8 Super Healthy Foods We Guarantee Your Kid will Eat

Mango

One cup of this sweet tropical fruit provides almost a whole day’s supply of Vitamin C which helps keep kids’ immune systems running strong and keeps teeth and gums healthy. It also provides 3 grams of fiber for just around 100 calories. Buy fresh or jarred in juice to serve cut up or in a smoothie or dessert like Banana-Mango Smoothie  (pictured) or Double Mango Pudding. Want a fun way to cool your kids off and provide a nutritious snack? Puree peeled cubes of mango in a food processor or blender; pour into popsicle molds or ice cube trays and freeze. In a few hours, you’ve got frozen mango pops!

 We all love mangos. I have a hard time telling when they're ripe though.

We love mangoes!  They make a really good mango salsa for beef, fish, or chicken.  We got the original recipe from Disney's Pass the Plate :).

There is a beef and mango stir fry listed in China.
