Mango & cucumber salsa is a simple and yummy way to boost up lunches or suppers. You can pop some on top of salmon, cod or chicken and this can transform these into a lovely sweet, crunchy and tangy deliciousness. You can add some to a lunch box as a salad for your children to enjoy at school.
The orange colour of the mango is a great source of beta-carotene. One cup provides your RDA for vitamin C and 35% of your Vitamin A needs. It is also rich in potassium. The vitamin B6 in mangoes is a vitamin required for GABA production in the brain. This is the “zen-like” hormone that keeps us calm. Food sources of GABA may be a great help to hyper children with overactive minds.
Coriander (also known as cilantro) has been used as a gentle detoxification agent and can mop up unwanted toxic metals in the body. It is a lovely fresh taste that many children enjoy and can be used in many different recipes.
