One medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on US potato contains just 110 calories per serving, boasts more potassium (620g) than a banana, provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent) and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. Researches confirms that potatoes play positive role in healthy diet and one that was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition demonstates that people can actually eat potatoes and still lose weight!

So what are you waiting for? Visit any of the participating restaurants and hotels this month to indulge in these awesome dishes! You wouldn’t want to miss them. They taste absolutely delicious. The quality US potatoes are also being served at many other restaurants and QSR chains. If you wish to cook them yourself, you can purchase them from leading supermarkets and hypermarkets.
