Mangoes

>

The mango is a member of the drupe family, a type of plant food in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell (sometimes call a pit) with a seed inside. Olives, dates and coconuts are also types of drupes. The antioxidant zeaxanthin, found in mangoes, helps filter out harmful blue light rays and is thought to play a protective role in eye health and possibly ward off damage from macular degeneration. With its creamy texture and sweet taste, mangoes are a great snack for kids and grown-ups.
