Half Wrong?!

I thought I was pretty nutritionally savvy until I took the Washington Post's nutrition quiz (here). Take the quiz and let me know how you do. I'm avoiding giving away any of the answers but some were very surprising. Good luck!

I got 70%. Not terrible, I guess. On some I was just plain wrong, some were worded trickily, and I just can't agree with a couple of them. There's still controversy about high fructose corn syrup and vitamins, and the answers they gave were presented as settled, established fact.

Mary -that is really good! I agree with you on on the questions. Some of them were really disingenuous. Personally, I think corn syrup should be avoided, not quite like the plague but just avoided if possible. As for vitamins I think of it as a kind of insurance policy on those days that Little Man is interested in eating only crackers and cheese. As for the rest of it -well it was good food for thought.
