Smiley Face French Fries

Potatoes are types of starchy root vegetables called tubers. They are great sources of fiber and rich in Vitamin C, B6, potassium, and manganese. Potatoes contribute to a healthy gut by providing fiber and acting as a prebiotic with resistant starch. Additionally, their rich vitamin C content supports immune system function, making them a valuable addition to promote overall well-being.
