resident Obama says broccoli is his favourite food

Washington, July 10 (ANI): US president Barack Obama has revealed that though he likes burgers and hot dogs, his favourite food is broccoli.

He made the declaration at a White House event- 'Kids' State Dinner'- which was organised to recognize children, who recently won a healthy recipe contest, Fox News reported.

Some of the winning recipes were 'picky eater pita pizza pockets' and 'sweet potato turkey sliders.'

The event was part of First Lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign.

The president's disclosure places him in direct odds with the culinary tastes of George H.W. Bush, who as president in 1990 declared his dislike for broccoli. (ANI)
