Nutritional values

Potatoes contain a lot of vitamin C, but broccoli has even more. Just 50 grams cover half of the daily requirements of adults and children almost 100 percent!

If your kids like vegetables, then replace 2/3 of the potatoes with cooked vegetables, such as carrots or pumpkin, which provides the great color and aroma.
