This weeks Nutrition Whiteboard is Pumpkin!


Pumpkin is an impressively nutritious food. It’s packed with nutrients and has under 50 calories per cooked cup (245 g). It can be purchased canned, frozen or fresh like all other fruit.

When buying canned (the most common source when cooking) be sure to get 100% pumpkin and avoid added sugars.

Have you ever tried to cook with or use pumpkin in recipes? Add it to soups, chilis or pies? Smoothies or hot cereals?
