Nutritional values

70 percent of the daily niacin requirement is in one serving alone. This ensures that your child's metabolism functions smoothly. The B vitamin is also important for the skin, nerves and all cell nuclei.

The balls are accompanied by a carrot-tomato sauce with parsley. This is also a great addition in terms of additional vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances.
