Pumpkin is one of our favourite vegetables here at Food For You. Not only is pumpkin delicious in curry, soup, salad and roasted, it's a great source of fibre.

Pumpkin also contains potassium, antioxidants and is high in both vitamin C and beta-carotene a powerful combination which helps strengthen your immune system and delay the ageing process. Pumpkin also contains other essential nutrients like vitamins A and E, riboflavin, and potassium. These nutrients support heart health, red blood cell production, and have been shown to reduce the risks of some cancers, stroke and diabetes type 2 in recent studies. It is rich in vitamins and minerals but low in calories. Pumpkin really is packed full of nutrients.
Carrot is another vegetable rich in both vitamin C and beta-carotene. Carrots are well known to help prevent vision loss and degeneration. Carrots have been shown to hold anti-cancer effects because they are high in antioxidant which aids in reducing free radicals in the body.
