    Hey I'm new to the WW pro points system and I just wanted to clarify if all veg and fruit are 0pp?

    I know potatoes have a pp value but are there any others that I need to allow pp for?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, parsnip peas sweetcorn and beans also have points

    Parsnip = 2pp for a medium parsnip (90g weight)
    Peas / sweetcorn = 2pp per 80g weight
    Beans (i.e. butter/cannelli etc) = 1pp per 35g weight

    as far as I am aware all other veg is free

    All fresh fruit is free - some tinned varieties have points tho.

    There are more veggies than that which you need to allow PP for unfortunately... here is the full list;

    avocado, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potato, sweetcorn including corn on the cob (excluding baby corn), yams, peas (excluding sugar snap, snow/mangetout), beans (excluding runner, green, french-style or beansprouts), lentils, cassava/yucca/manioc, olives, plantain

    HTH :)
