  1. This recipe looks pretty tasty.Many fruits and vegetables ‘contain’ vitamins and/or minerals (they are not ‘enriched’ in them). Also, evidence has shown that increasing the range of fruits and vegetables as well as the overall amount you consume, in addition to leading a healthy lifestyle will reduce your risk of developing many chronic diseases. So whilst tasty there’s nothing particularly special about mangoes.
