10 Foods for Great Summer Nutrition


Mangoes are high in vitamins A and C. Eat one cup of sliced mangoes, and you've covered about 25 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A (which is good for your eyesight) and about 75 percent of your daily vitamin C needs (which is good for your immune system). They're also high in fiber (which will help keep you feeling full longer), high in potassium (which helps with heart health), and low in calories, fat, sodium and cholesterol [source: McDonald, Medical Daily]. There are also early findings that mangoes may be helpful in reducing body fat and blood sugar levels.
