Three Delicious Ways to Serve Pumpkin to your Little One

Three Delicious Ways to Serve Pumpkin to your Little One

Pumpkin is not only delicious, but it's also nutrient dense - it's an especially great source of Vitamin A.  Don’t let your pumpkins go to waste this spooky season, follow our fang-tastic recipes below 🧛🎃

For these recipes, we've used pumpkin puree and you can easily make this at home with your leftover pumpkin. Removed your pumpkin’s stringy and seedy innards and then cut it in half. Place both halves cut-side-down onto a baking sheet and roast until the flesh is soft and coming away from the skin (180C for ~45-60 mins). Once the pumpkin is roasted, blend or mash the flesh until smooth. 

Homemade pumpkin puree can be stored in food-safe containers in the fridge for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months.
