Pizza Is A Vegetable


Move over carrots, brussel sprouts and lettuce. Pizza’s here!

The hope to eliminate particular foods deemed unhealthy from school cafeterias, as supported by the Obama administration and the USDA, were dashed by Congress late last week. The proposal, requesting a change to the vegetable status of pizza and a limit to the serving frequency of french fries, was made in response to a nutrition law passed last year that called to improve the nutritional value of school lunches. However, last Thursday Congress passed a bill that abandoned this proposal, stating that it would prevent increased spending for schools that are already strapped for cash.

Frozen food makers and the salt industry are ecstatic. The proposal would have put a huge dent in their profits.

So how does pizza classify as a vegetable? Well, according to Congress, it’s all about the tomato paste. Two tablespoons of the stuff is deemed as one serving of vegetables.

The move is similar to attempts at classifying ketchup as a vegetable back during Ronald Regan’s presidency.

With obesity and soaring cholesterol levels affecting more and more people in the US, this bill may just foster the national epidemic.
