Other health benefits of winter squash:

  • With only a 1-cup serving, you get nearly half the recommended daily dose of antioxidant-rich vitamin C.
  • Butternut squash's beta-carotene content is close to that of mangoes and cantaloupe. That's a benefit in the fight against cancer, heart disease, and cataracts.
  • Beta-carotene may also play a role in reducing lung inflammation and emphysema.
Winter squash is as delicious as it is colorful. These hard, tasty squash can fill up your garden -- and your stomach, becoming a healthy addition to your eating plan that you're sure to enjoy!
