The Pumpkin is a variety of the Winter Squash group, famously purchased for Halloween or Thanksgiving in the US. But if that’s all you purchase it for, you are missing out. It’s a truly great tasty vegetable.

This vegetable is very low in calories, carbohydrates and fat, but is full of vitamins and minerals. Just 100 grams of Pumpkin can provide 40% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin A and nearly a third of the beta-carotene we need. It also provides a good source of vitamin C, E, B1-B3, B5, B6, iron, phosphorus and potassium, and more.

You can also eat the Pumpkin seeds – consider toasting them or popping them into a frying pan, don't throw them away. They are full of protein and are thought to help lower your cholesterol.

We have two calorie tables below for you and a nutrition chart which compare a raw pumpkin against a cooked one.
