Pumpkins are not just for decoration.  Pumpkins are low in saturated fat, and very low in cholesterol and sodium.  They are also a good source of vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus.  They are also a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, copper, and manganese.
