Nutritional values

Pumpkin provides cell-protecting beta-carotene - and the more orange the vegetable is, the more it provides. The nuts provide your child with an additional 40 percent of the daily requirement of vitamin E, which also supports the body's own defences.

Leftover muffins keep fresh for at least 3 days in a box in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them, of course; they then need about 3-4 hours to defrost at room temperature.
