The sweet potato is one of the best sources of vitamin A.  It is also an excellent source of vitamin C providing 47% of the RDA in just 4 oz. canned sweet potatoes are nearly as high in nutrients as fresh ones.

Both canned and fresh sweet potatoes are good sources of B vitamins. Another nutritious feature is that sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates and fiber. This combination helps control blood sugar levels and control appetite!

Try it baked with slices of apple or fresh pineapple, to excite your taste buds and provide even more nutrients with these fruits!
