A 20-year-old male asked:
Are sweet potato fries healthy or just a healthier choice than regular french fries?

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.
