A staple food for cultures around the world, potatoes are a high-quality carbohydrate-containing vegetable, supporting nutrient intakes across the lifespan. While potatoes are America’s favorite vegetable, many don’t know that the origin of potatoes dates to ancient civilizations who cultivated the potato around 8,000 to 5,000 BC. Today, potatoes support healthy, culturally diverse eating patterns and provide a solution to building nourishing meals given their accessibility, versatility and nutrition contributions, yet potatoes are often overlooked given persistent misperceptions about their nutrient profile, preparation methods and glycemic impact. Current scientific evidence illustrates that carbohydrate-containing foods should be defined beyond their glycemic index score – the total nutrient package of the food must be considered.  
Join Bonnie Johnson, MS, RDN of Potatoes USA and Franciel Ikeji, MS, RDN, LD as they share a historical perspective with ideas for creating culturally relevant meal plans featuring potatoes and some food for thought on high quality carbohydrate-containing foods. Chef RJ Harvey, RDN of Potatoes USA will walk attendees through 2 recipe concepts to demonstrate the global versatility and endless possibilities of potato-packed recipes. 
This webinar is generously sponsored by Potatoes USA.
We anticipate this webinar will be approved for 1.0 CPEU.
