Good reasons to buy that pumpkin this week feed it to your little one and of course the whole family…..
They are rich in the following essential nutrients:
Vitamin A – for healthy eyes and vision
Carotenoids (which give the pumpkin its orange colour) – helps the body to convert more Vit A
Vitamin C – boosts the immune system
Fibre – critical for good digestion
Antioxidants (beta-carotene) – help prevent cancer cell growth
Amino acids (in the seeds) – helps serotonin production which improves mood
Magnesium, zinc and other micro nutrients – essential for bone health and healing capabilities

Pumpkin soup all round I think! :-)
