    In British English, veggie means vegetarian (at least according to the Collins Dictionary). It can also be an adjective which is used to talk about food that doesn't contain any meat or fish: Going veggie can be tasty, easy and healthy too. Veg is an informal British word which means a vegetable or vegetables: I like both fruit and veg.

    In American English veggie means vegetable first of all. But of course it is more informal than vegetable: ...well-balanced meals of fresh fruit and veggies, chicken, fish, pasta, and no red meat.

    I have heard them used interchangably. If your talking about vegtables. After said "vegtables" one time. Then the speaker starts using shorthand "veggies".

    There is no 'English'. Out language in Great Britain is essentially 'English'. You may depict the language when utilized by different nations as 'American English' or 'Australian English' because of contrasts those nations have forced on our language yet here it is essentially 'English',. like Germans communicate in German and the French communicate in French.

    There is no 'British English'. Out language in Great Britain is simply 'English'. You may describe the language when used by other countries as 'American English' or 'Australian English' due to differences those countries have imposed on our language but over here it is simply 'English',. like Germans speak German and the French speak French.

    Yes. They can be used in slightly different context or styles of speech/writing, but the same thing is being referred to.  And "DO veggies and vegetables MEAN the same?" is how we ask this kind of question in better English...  Take away the main verb 'mean' and 'Are veggies and vegetables the same?' is also a proper question in English.
