US Potato Board joined by Katie Cavuto Boyle for educational video series

US Potato Board (USPB) launched a campaign, an educational video series starring registered dietitian Katie Cavuto Boyle. The video series is called "Seven Potato Types" and it introduces you the aspects of each and every of the following potato types - russets, reds, yellows, whites, purples, fingerlings and petites.

The potato is especially nutritious and healthy at the same time. A 5.3-ounce potato has more potassium in it than a banana and it also takes care of half of your daily vitamin C needs. Additionally it contains just 110 calories, zero fat, cholesterol and sodium.

The USPB "Real Mom" ambassador, chef and owner of Healthy Bites as well as a blogger for the Food Network's "Healthy Eats," Katie Cavuto Boyle, says that "Potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse. Thatís why I like to use different colorful potato types as the base for light, spring salad dishes and then top with additional in-season veggies to round out a fresh, natural side dish."

The spring is here, it's time to start eating like it!
