Do potatoes count as one of your 5 a day ?
Closed

I am curious what people think or if anyone knows for a fact. After all a potato is a vegetable so does it count as one of the 5 a day vegetables and fruit that we all supposed to have a day. I do not suppose that 5 portions of chips would count or 5 bags of crisps but a baked potato might.

Hi there, I don't think it does count towards your 5 a day as its full of starch .Not what they term or are thought of in the same sense as other veg which are included in what they want you to consume for the benefit of your health.

Since they are a vegetable you would think so, but I belief that in dietary terms they count as a protein food.

A potato isn't counted as one of your five a day. It counts as a carb instead.

Sorry Glen, they dont count as one of your five a day as they come in the carbohydrate section even though they are high in Vitimin C, they are still a major part of your diet though :O)

Im sorry to say Glenn that potatoes are not classed as one of your five a day! They are carbs and starch so they are in the same class as pasta !

i dont think they do count but wouldnt it be good if you could count a bag of chips as one of your 5 a day. i heard someone on the radio pose the question 'do chocolate raisins count as one of my 5 a day' which i thought was hilarious. i can think of all sorts of options for my 5 a day if that is the case. terrys chocolate orange, cherry coke, strawberry laces, lemon drizzle cake, apple turnover, the list goes on. my friends and i tried to think of the most ridiculous foods that could possibly count os a 5 a day item, you would be amazed at how many there are!
