Probably not: They are still fried starch, they can't be too healthy for you.

Healthy choices: Sweet potatoes are a healthy food - frying them makes them less healthy. However they are a healthier choice than regular french fries. Take care.

Neither: Foods that are deep fired are not healthy choices. If you must, choose sweet potatoes.
