Mango Salsa

Today I have something exciting for you all. EasyBabyMeals has teamed up with four other food bloggers and we have created ‘Foodie Mamas’. In this group, one of us chooses a food ingredient, we work around that chosen ingredient and come with our recipes. These recipes get published every last Wednesday of the month.

For this month we have chosen, Mangoes”. So here we are with different recipes containing mangoes as the main ingredient.

I thought of making Mango Salsa for little ones. This is a wonderful fruity salsa for toddlers. Besides mangoes, I have added, strawberries, black grapes, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Along with these, I added little cumin powder and fresh basil to give it an added flavor and aroma. You can serve this salsa fresh as an accompaniment to other food or as is.

Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits. They are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc, iron, manganese, and copper. Besides these, they are high in fiber. Mangos contain a higher level of carotenoids which reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. They also help in fighting the common cold. Mangoes are rich in anti-oxidants too. This wonderful fruit can be introduced to babies at the age of 8 months. Mangoes can sometimes cause diaper rash or diarrhea due to it high fiber content. So use caution while introducing mangoes to babies younger than 8 months.

The following recipe can be given to babies 1 year above. Just cut the fruit pieces small enough to avoid choking risk. For grown-ups, add little cayenne pepper, jalapeños, and onions.

    Wow, these recipes are spot on for the summer season and just look scrumptious. I am really looking forward to trying the mango sorbet for my little guy and the whole family of course. Thanks for posting these.

    This looks great! I wish my picky toddlers would eat something like this but I doubt it. Maybe I’ll start slow with a few of the ingredients and work them up to this. Thanks for the great recipe and idea!

    What a creative idea using one ingredient among a small group and come up with recipe ideas. I like it! I love all the colors in the Mango Salad. I think adults may want to eat this too! 🙂

    That Mango Salsa looks fantastic! When my daughter was a toddler she ate everything but baby food. Now that she’s almost four, I have very little problem with her trying different foods. It;s such a good idea to introduce kids to new foods and flavors!
