The article reports on the potato diet of Chris Voigt, Washington State Potato Commission's executive director, to promote the nutritional value of potatoes and prove that the government policies banning potatoes for low-income families and school children had no basis. It says that the government still restricts potatoes in nutrition programs for children though Voigt claims that he is getting nutrients. Moreover, dietician Jennifer Sygo does not recommend that someone should eat potato alone.
