What do you count as veggies?  do you serve veggies with each meal?  What kind of veggies do you serve?

We usually have roasted veggies with each meal. Whatever we have on hand.

And fries. No, not a veggie. A potato is a veggie, but I wouldn't serve fries and say here's your vegetables.

We sometimes serve veggies with lunch. Always at least one with dinner. And no. French fries never count!

I usually do. It depends on what we have on hand.

I do not consider fries a vegetable.

3 moms liked this

While technically they are veggies, in my menus I count potatoes as a starch.... (Corn too)

I make turnip fries(baked) and count those as a veggie though..(but I serve a green veggie with them as well)

I include veggies in every lunch and dinner I make.

No fries aren't a veggie to us.  I usually steam broccoli or carrots, or cook corn, peas or green beans.

fries are not really vegetables.  they are a starch, so is corn.  they should be eaten in moderation.  i do try to make a veg with each meal tho.

No, we do not consider fries a vegetable in a meal. Almost all of our meals contain a green veggie at the least.

If I serve fries, they'll get another veggie as well....our favorites are steamed broccoli, roasted brussels sprouts (my 6 year old LOVES them), green beans and cooked greens (kale, spinach, collard, you name it!).
