Battered fries are considered “fresh vegetables”!?

Well, probably not by nutritionists, but the USDA, backed by a court decision says they are.

(Above link will probably expire in few days).

    That’s a poorly reported story:

    Additional info from the Chicago Sun-Times:

    "But the department said Tuesday that the classification applies only to rules of commerce, not nutrition, and it doesn’t consider an order of fries the same as an apple in school lunches."

  2. I enjoy eating French Fires.
