This darling of the dinner table is one of the greatest nutritional values in the produce department. At just 31 cents per serving, a medium potato (5.3 oz) eaten with its skin on:
- Has just 110 calories
- Has nearly half your Daily Value of vitamin C (45%)
- Is one of the best sources of potassium (614 mg) and fiber (2 g) in the produce section.
- Is naturally fat-free and sodium-free
- Contains many of the nutrients the Dietary Guidelines (link to site) recommend Americans increase in their diet
And, according to USDA MyPlate, 1 medium skin-on potato equals 1 cup starchy vegetables.
