Some say spuds get a bad rap

Posted: Updated:

Leaders at the Washington Potato Conference say some nutritionists give spuds a bad wrap.

The key note speaker, Dayle Hayes, says there are many kinds of potatoes and they all have nutritional value.

 She says the real difference comes in how you portion and prepare them.

"Increase the variety and there's so many delicious ways to prepare potatoes to get all those nutrients without a lot of added fat," says Registered Dietician Dayle Hayes

Hayes says it's easy to keep potatoes healthy. Just bake instead of frying and use low fat sides instead of gobs of sour cream and butter.
