The Ripe Stuff! Cayman’s Local Produce

Standard medical advice is to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, at least five portions a day. Cayman Parent visited the farmer’s markets to see which extra nutritious products are available for your family to try! Remember to wash produce thoroughly before eating it.


 

 

Pumpkin

Rich in carotene and fibre. The seeds contain high amounts of protein, zinc and other vitamins.

Tomatoes

Packed full of vitamin C which helps with the absorption of iron. Also a good source of lycopene which is an antioxidant.

Eggs

A high protein food full of vitamins. Just make sure they are well cooked if you are pregnant.

 

 

Mangoes

An excellent source of vitamin A and C and rich in fibre. Local varieties Bombay, Keitt and Carrie are absolutely delicious.

 

Passion Fruit

This wonderful fruit contains vitamin A and C, riboflavin, niacin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and copper.

Spinach, Kale & Bok Choy

These leafy greens are loaded with vitamins and nutrients, including vitamins A, C and K.

 

 

Snapper
