9. Sweet potato wedges
Sweet potatoes do count, unlike their white cousin the potato – which are classed as a starch, making them a carbohydrate and not a vegetable.
“Sweet potatoes are a good source of the antioxidant beta-carotene and can be classed as your five-a-day because they’re usually eaten in addition to the starch food part of the meal.”
How much? 1 x 5-a-day serving = 1 small sweet potato.
