February is PEI Potato Lovers Month in Canada!

(CHARLOTTETOWN, PE  –  February 9, 2015)  It’s time to celebrate Prince Edward Island Potatoes this winter, because February is PEI Potato Lovers Month in Canada!  Nutritious and tasty PEI Potatoes are available from grocery stores across Canada and can feature in all meals of the day.  Potatoes are the most consumed vegetable in Canada, providing essential nutrients for a balanced diet.

February is also Heart Month in Canada, so it is important to note that potatoes are a heart-healthy choice that are high in potassium.  Increasing potassium intake has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. Did you know that the average serving of potatoes contains more potassium than a banana?
