Presidential vegetables


President Obama really eats baby carrots, according to this recently released photo of a March 10 lunch.

“The President, if you look closely, is holding baby carrots in his hands," noted ObamaFoodorama, the blog written by Eddie Gehman Kohan that chronicles White House food initiatives.

"It's a rare shot of Mr. Obama clutching vegetables, that foodstuff his wife spends so much time promoting. Most of the food photos of President Obama, whether taken by photojournalists or by White House photographers, have shown him eating things like burgers or ice cream (or Hawaiian Shave Ice, while on vacation).”
