Nutrition Twins Spotlight APRE Pregnancy Research About Potatoes and Starchy Vegetables
Time:14 May 2015
Posted by


Registered dietitians and longtime potato ambassadors, the Nutrition Twins, published an article, spotlighting the new APRE research which found vegetable consumption, including starchy vegetables, falls short of recommended levels among women of childbearing age. As the Twins wrote, ?°So this is great news if you?ˉre pregnant and craving potatoes! Or for that matter, it?ˉs good news for any of us who want to have our potato?-and eat it too. Woot, woot!?±

This article ran in, a site which enjoys almost 4 million unique visitors per month. The Nutrition Twins featured a potato recipe in the article and on their Pinterest board, and we expect to see both Twitter and Facebook shares. This is one of the many high-profile media results from the USPB consumer publicity blitz to communicate APRE?ˉs research findings, which were presented at Experimental Biology in March.

APRE first distributed a press release to the science community through EurekaAlert! March 30th. Then the USPB distributed the consumer press release April 3, via PR Newswire, and it was covered by 257 online news outlets for 21,965,000 impressions. Highlights included: Denver Business Journal, International Business Times, Dallas Morning News, and a handful of blogs including Mompreneur Media and FrugalNovice. It?ˉs excellent to have another study providing a strong, science-based nutrition message for the industry to use when communicating the benefits of potatoes.
