Can mushrooms be considered one of your 5 a day?

Neil S. Briscoe asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Everyone knows that whilst a potato is a vegetable, you can't include it as one of your five a day due to the starch they contain.

So I wondered if you can exclude certain vegetables, could you include something that is neither fruit nor veg.

I'm eating lots of mushrooms at the moment, since they're in season. Do they count?

Regards
Neil

What do you think?
