Are potatoes a good source of iron?

    Potatoes often get a bad rap because of their high starch content.  They are however, if cooked properly, a healthful source.  Potatoes are low in fat and the skin is high in vitamin C.  It is a moderate source of iron and a good source of B vitamins.  It is also high in potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous.

    A normal sized potato is a good source of iron, in addition to fiber, vitamin C, and potassium.  Thus it is a healthy part of a balanced diet.  As long, of course, as they are not deep fried and given as part of a fast food meal.
