Nutritional values

Concentrated nerve food for your child: the Swedish style balls provide the entire daily niacin requirement and three times the daily vitamin B12 requirement. Both substances are important for the proper functioning of the brain, nerves and muscles.

Boiled potatoes are not quite in style, but they are even healthier as a side dish: they contain slightly more vitamins than peeled boiled potatoes.
