What's for Lunch Wednesday - What's YOUR Food IQ?

A recent video on The Huffington Post shows celebrity chef Jamie Oliver testing first graders on how many fruits and vegetables they can identify. You may (or may not) be surprised to see how many of them do not recognize things like tomatoes, potatoes, mushrooms or cauliflower.

You may think that tomatoes and potatoes are pretty easy, but how do you think your child (or you) would do with some of the more uncommon ones?
