President Obama (says he) loves broccoli
Broccoli growers have found their new “poster boy”: President Obama has at long last revealed his favorite food — broccoli.
At least, that’s the answer he gave a kid guest at the second annual “Kids’ State Dinner” that first lady Michelle Obama organized to promote healthy eating.
Skeptics immediately reacted noting that the president is often photographed eating hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and other non-green non-vegetables.
Anyway, the good news is that broccoli are definetely in (and gone are the days of former president George H.W. Bush flaunting his distaste for the leafy vegetable!)
And what about you? Do you like to eat broccoli?
