Six Good Reasons to Eat A Potato This Weekend

For a weekend send-off, here’s a reminder why you should eat a potato (or two!) this weekend:

  1. One medium-size (5.3 ounce, or about the size of a computer mouse) potato has 110 calories
  2. Potatoes are naturally fat free, sodium free and cholesterol free
  3. This darling of the dinner table provides 45 percent of your daily value of vitamin C
  4. When eaten with the skin, a potato has more potassium than a banana
  5. On average, a potato costs just 25 cents
  6. A potato is also a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin B6

No wonder it’s America’s favorite vegetable!
