Is 蔬菜 wrong here?

I was wondering about this

why do you not need 和 between each in the list

It's more natural to skip 和 at all when listing things. 火锅里有肉、菜、鱼。

For the same reason that in English you only use "and" at the end list item

Just think about it in english do you say , there are vegtables and fish and meat, no we use and once.

我可以写 “在火锅里有…” 吗


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JenniferBo459845

The English should be "There is meat ..." not there are meat

It does sound strange but clearly they're talking about multiple things
