A story about a mother's love language of peeling fruit for her baby.
We follow the life of baby Fernando, as we journey through moments of food where his mother takes the time to peel mangoes for him as well as the whole family. In island culture, fruit is a staple in the household. In the story, Fernando grows and falls into the societal standards of what is fun to snack on, like chips. But when Fernando has a baby of his own, he then gets to learn about that bond between a parent and child and a simple fruit.
