Kids Think Ketchup and Bread are Part of Fruit and Vegetables Food-group

A UK study has revealed that one in ten kids think that low-fat crisp, ketchup and bread are a part of five helpings of fruit and vegetables a day.

The study also revealed that one-third of the children between the age group of eight and fifteen years consider roasted potatoes in the list and almost 15 pct call pasta vegetable.

Four percent did not include apple in their five-a-day routine.

"It is clear from our findings that children still need to be made aware of what constitutes a healthy diet," the Sun quoted Phil Gibson, of Dairy Farmers of Britain which conducted the survey, as saying.

Dr Frankie Phillips of the British Dietetic Association said that misconceptions are 'worrying,' and that it is important to tell children about essential and non-essential food.

Philips added that a good example of healthy eating habits can be parents themselves.

"It is worrying kids have such misconceptions about food. "More and more children and adults are aware of the importance of having five daily fruit and veg portions," he said.

"But more needs to be done to help children understand what counts and what doesn't. "Parents can be a good example by eating healthily themselves," he added.
