Mangos are not only nutritious, they are also delicious! Mango is one super hero fruit, which packs in over 20 different vitamins and minerals. One cup of fresh mangos delivers 100% of your daily vitamin C. Available year-round; mangos bring a burst of tropical flavor to any dish. Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy incorporating more mangos into their diet with the tips below:
1. Snack Attack
Let’s face it, kids and adults are hungry after a long school or work day. Offer the family a bowl of fresh fruit that includes mangos as a light snack before dinner. Having fresh cut fruit, will likely deter family members from seeking out the more unhealthy choices in the pantry. Mangos can be enjoyed with salt, lime juice or chili powder for a unique flavor experience. Looking for a time savor? Check out the Jewel-Osco produce section for fresh cut mangos that are ready to eat.
2. Mangos in Main Dishes
Mango is a perfect complement to lean protein dishes. Mango salsa or slaw is great with chicken, pork and fish.

In addition, Mangos can help balance the starch of rice, beans and corn in your side dishes.
3. Brighten with Mangos
Brighten up condiments with Mango. Mango’s sweetness enhances the richness of creamy guacamole or adds additional sweetness to a barbeque sauce. Mangoes are a perfect ingredient for marinades for meat and vegetables because of their natural tenderizing properties.
