Weight Management

Pumpkin is more than just a seasonal treat found in pies and other sugary baked goods. In reality, it’s packed with nutrients, like vitamin C, potassium and other minerals that are good for you. To reap these health benefits, try incorporating canned pumpkin into appetizers, snacks and your favorite dishes. Get creative and you might be the hit of the Thanksgiving dinner table this year.
