Alternative to butter in potatoes

I love jacket potatoes with cheese and ham of course I use a lighter cheese but I can't stand dry potatoes something has to go in them. Obviously butter is the first option but do you have any better suggestions that may be healthier?

Well the easy substitute for butter is usually olive oil but sometimes that doesn't work for the flavor and consistency you are looking for. You could also do a fake butter product like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, or something like that.

Maybe try a lighter spread with reduced fat and it should hopefully add the same type of buttery texture to the potato

Sometimes I put a little splash of milk on the potato and kind of mash it in to soften it. Then I melt a little cheese over that with the other ingredients.

I use real butter, not fake crap that is processed and created chemically from refined polyunsaturated oils...
