7 things a 7-year-old could convince congress are vegetables

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I read an article called 7 things a 7-year-old could convince congress are vegetables. Congress has already declared that the tomato sauce on Pizza is a vegetable. So here’s the gist of the article:

CHOCOLATE: comes from a bean, so it must be a vegetable. (And so’s my morning cup of joe!)
POPCORN: Well, it does come from corn...
MAPLE SYRUP: Comes from a tree with leaves, so this is basically a green salad!
PICKLE DORITOS: 2 vegetables: cucumbers & corn!
KETCHUP: Okay, tomatoes. And Sugar (high fructose corn syrup) from CORN!
ONION RINGS: 3 vegetables if you have fries and ketchup with it.
CANDY CORN: & candy pumpkins. A good mix of orange, yellow, white & green vegetables.

Get your kids or grandkids to come up with more!

    By the way, I was a cook in a kids' camp for a year (school groups year round), and I quickly learned that kids would only eat certain things. The only cooked veg they would eat was corn (which is a grain, not a vegetable), and they would eat carrot sticks but not celery sticks. They didn't mind salad, so that was good.

    Don't forget bacon!!!!! The smoke comes from a tree or something, right?

    Instead, they get food they don't like, that is still frozen, and they just throw it out and spend the afternoon hungry and receive no nourishment at all.

  I think ketchup was considered a vegetable for school lunches years ago.
