Potatoes are delicious. It's a shame they aren't amazing for us past pretty small doses. But that's just it: they are pretty good for us when eaten in moderation!
And that's why Susan Collins is working her hardest to get some respect back for potatoes before the USDA bans them completely from school breakfasts!
"I certainly agree that french fries is not the healthiest choice, but a baked potato can be a good source of potassium for our children."
The new guidelines from the USDA would all but kick the potato out of meals completely for kids at school, save for a few instances for lunch.
The main argument is that there are better ways to attack childhood obesity — like getting rid of french fries and getting kids to be more active.
Do U think this will solve the problem??
