Does hominy or corn grits with no addtives made as a cereal count toward my vegetable serving for the day?

Hominy is dried and puffed whole kernels of corn and corn grits are coarsely ground dried corn. We count canned hominy as a vegetable serving, but once hominy or corn are ground into a flour and then used more as a “grain” product like corn grits, we no longer count it as a vegetable serving.  (Similarly, we do not count popcorn as one of your vegetable servings!)
