Nutrition at Home

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 calorieschoose myplate.gov image
  • 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 USDA Dietary Guidelines¬†recommend Americans increase in their diet

 

And, according to USDA MyPlate, 1 medium skin-on potato equals 1 cup starchy vegetables.
