Is corn a healthy vegetable to eat?

Answer courtesy of Beth Winthrop, RD, National Development Director for Wellness, Campus Services

Like all vegetables, corn is a healthy addition to your diet. Eat corn (and other vegetables) without added fats like butter, cheese and creamy sauces. Fresh corn on the cob is a delicious treat without butter. Fresh plain air-popped popcorn is a crunchy treat thatss much healthier than most chips. Because corn is higher in calories and carbohydrates than most other vegetables, portions can add up. However, corn is also high in filling fiber and can replace higher fat meat in dishes such as chilies, soups and stews. Corn is also gluten-free.
