Good for you

Aus­tralian man­goes are at their best in sum­mer and are a great op­tion for adding ex­tra flavour and nu­tri­tion to your meals.

Like many fruits, man­goes pro­vide a good hit of fi­bre, which en­cour­ages a healthy di­ges­tive sys­tem

and keeps you feel­ing fuller for longer.

They are also low GI, help­ing you man­age your blood glu­cose lev­els. With just 100g pro­vid­ing about 50 per cent of your rec­om­mended daily in­take for vi­ta­min C and vi­ta­min A, man­goes are a su­perb choice for sup­port­ing nor­mal growth

and devel­op­ment, night vi­sion and wound heal­ing.

One small mango con­tains about 30g of carbs. So, if you’re adding it to a meal con­tain­ing other sources of carbs, it may be best to cut your serv­ing size down to just one

mango cheek and save the rest for an­other day.

NU­TRI­TION IN­FOR­MA­TION

PER 100G (ap­prox­i­mately half a small mango): 250kJ, pro­tein 1g, to­tal fat 0.2g (sat. fat 0g), carbs 13g, fi­bre 2g, sodium 1mg • Carb ex­changes 1 • GI es­ti­mate low
