This is wild.

No wonder we don't eat fruits and veggies. Look at the ones on this list!

Yeah, and there was a survey that asked kids what French fries were made of, and about 30% said flour and oil.

I do not drink Oj or eat oranges. I rarely eat apples. Eat bananas regularly. Also mangos, strabwerries, raspberries, almost daily.

Rarely eat potatoes- fresh, frozen or fried (*maybe* once a week). Peppers, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, onions, kohlrabi, yams, turnip, rutabaga, and yes lettuce, are my staple veggies. Eating canned tomatos though sounds kind of gross...

When you look at the average american diet, it's mostly grain and animal based. Pathetic and disgusting really. Even vegetarians rarely eat a diverse selection of veggies (and many are practically starchitarians...) But when the ADA is funded yb agribusiness, what do you expect?

It doesn't help that ketchup, salsa, and fries are considered veggies by the school lunch folk. Maybe if we fed our socioeconomically disadvantaged kids (those receiving these lunches) better, they'd learn better, and then eat better as adults...
