Someone should have told me this about 45 years ago....From a young age, children will eat what their parents eat. Therefore, if their parents overeat, they are more likely to overeat as well.

Then, top with the fun stuff: smooth avocado, crunchy red pepper, and sweet, juicy mango. Last, a few sprinkles of fresh cilantro on top, and voila!
