King Edward

Ah, the wonders of the potato. You can boil it, bake it, chip it, fry it, mash it; and yet it is not seen anywhere in the UK government's 5-a-day campaingn.
Is it not a vegetable? Does it not bleed if it is pricketht? (Eh?)
How unlike the US's own 5-9 a day (yes, they always go one better in the Land of the Free) campaign, where the potato takes its rightful place amongst the white fruit and veg in the 'colors of health'.
According to the UK website potatoes (as well as yams and cassava) are not included since they are 'starchy foods'. No yams either? Oh come on guys.
