Celebrate National Heart Month with
® Potatoes


“Great Flavor and Nutrition Wrapped in One”
Potatoes are one of the most nutritious vegetables in the produce department. Many don’t realize that one medium-size potato has more vitamin C than an apple and twice as much potassium as a banana. Plus, potatoes have fiber and are naturally fat-, cholesterol- and sodium-free. And, did you know Idaho potatoes are certified by the American Heart Association as a heart-healthy food? Can’t beat that! The Idaho Potato Commission has a page on its website loaded with nutrition information and a collection of delicious recipes that meet the American Heart Association’s criteria as a heart-healthy dish. Enjoy!
