• Yes, lots of nutrition. It is still potatoes, which are very nutritious. Lots of minerals and vitamins, and depending on what else, it also would have the fat and things from the other ingredients.
      Good answer. I'm always surprised at people who don't realize how healthy potatoes are. Yes, french fries have high fat content and for that reason are not very healthy, but potatoes themselves are very healthful, with loads of vitamin C and potassium, and they are a relatively low calorie food (again: if you avoid the added fat).
  • Not really, potatoes are mostly starch and don't have much nutrition even without mashing
  • Butter is good for you because your body actually needs saturated fat. Just not too much. They have either milk or stock in them and salt (need sodium) and pepper. (Nothing) Potatoes contain trace ammts of vitamin C and Fiber and carbs are also good for brain function and energy.
  • There is. Mashed potatoes are a good source of fiber, which can help you lose weight by keeping you full longer.
  • Yes, lots. Just don't over do the cream and butter. An excerpt; "Potatoes are naturally fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low in sodium. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, and those eaten with the skin are a good source of potassium. Potatoes also provide many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6, folate, niacin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and manganese. They are one of the finest sources of starch, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. One unskinned potato provides more than 40% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, about half the vitamin B6 needed for the day, and more potassium than a banana.
  • Of course! "Mashed potatoes, prepared from fresh (0.5 cup) contains 22g total carbs, 19.8g net carbs, 4.4g fat, 2.2g protein, and 134 calories."
