Top 10 School Lunch Foods People Count As Fruits or Vegetables But Aren't

I've just seen lots of classmates squirt ketchup on their tray and count it as a vegetable. Sure they are made out of tomatoes but they are liquidized and have lots of sugar. These students need to stop counting ketchup (and my other items) as fruits/vegetables. Feel free to add items and comment.

The Top Ten

1 Pizza Sauce

This is the same thing as ketchup. Though sauce is typically made out of tomatoes, they aren't the healthiest nor is pizza itself. Sure tastes good though

2 Ketchup

Like I said, though they may be made out of tomatoes, but they have lots of sugar also. Not natural sugar, added sugar.

Ketchup is not a fruit, nor a vegetable

3 Jell-O

Fruity jello can taste very good sometimes (I personally don't like it) but it has way too much sugar for it to be a fruit. If anything this is a dessert

4 Sour Cream

How is this a fruit or a vegetable?

5 Fruit Ice Cream Cup

These fun cups may taste very good, but just have too much sugar and almost no actual fruit in it.

6 Salsa

Salsa is basically a Mexican ketchup. Well, not exactly but there just isn't enough nutrients for it to be a vegetable.

What? Thankfully my school doesn't serve salsa! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

7 Potatoes

Whether mashed, put in tater tots, or just plain potatoes. Potatoes don't count as a vegetable as they are a carb but sweet potatoes count as vegetables!

I like both potatoes and sweet potatoes.

8 Corn

Same as potatoes as they are actually a carb but at least corn does have a few benafits vegetables do.

Grain. It's a graiiin, people.

9 French Fries French Fries French fries are served hot, either soft or crispy, and are generally eaten as part of lunch or dinner or by themselves as a snack, and they commonly appear on the menus of fast food restaurants. Fries in America are generally salted and are often served with ketchup; in many countries they are topped more.

This is actually a starch and it is fat and high in sodium and oil.

Yea my elementary school counts fries as a vegetable because they are potatoes which I don't understand because French fries are not good for you at all

Very good point however I already mentioned potatoes.

10 Pickles

Actually they are vegetables silly. I love them
