in counting sweetcorn as one of their five a day?

So sweetcorn, lovely sweetcorn. So easy to add to a kid's meal to increase the veg quota... But really, should it be included? Does it provide any goodness? We all know it comes out the other end the same way it went in. Does any of its nutrients get absorbed? Can I legitimately count it as a veg portion?

Am I missing something - why ever would it not count?
Oh and luxemburgerli, checking how long it takes sweetcorn to make it out to the ahem other end is a good way to see how effectively your bowels are working, should be through within 12 hrs I believe.

Ok, so it seems as if I can count it. Good good.
So that brings me to my next question. Can you count it (and any other fruit/veg) you've lovingly prepared and served to your (ungrateful) little darlings if they don't actually eat any of it (the feckers)? I'm going for a definite yes on this one.
