National Tater Day, In the News, and Enjoy

- Today is National Tater Day!

National Tater Day was actually named to honor the Kentuckian farmers who celebrated the end of winter by trading sweet potato snippets to plant. Today, people celebrate both the sweet potato and the regular white potato on Tater Day.

There is actually very little similarity between the sweet potato and the white potato.

The Sweet Potato and the White Potato:

  • The white potato has more calories, vitamins, fiber, and calcium. White potatoes have more iron.
  • Sweet potatoes are a much better potato choice for diabetics as white potatoes cause blood sugars to rise 30% more than sweet potatoes.
  • Sweet potatoes have more potassium than bananas.
  • Most of the fiber from both potatoes is in the skin.
  • One may substitute sweet potatoes in any of your potato dishes.
