Fruits and vegetables are some of the food groups that we love to indulge in because they are generally healthy and delicious. But do you know that they are also amongst the hardest food to classify?

Got all mixed up? We are too! But after we watched the video below, we feel like there are lots more to learn about the food we eat and this video is a good start.
