A picture of a Bulgarian Agriculture Minister Miroslav Naydenov frowning as he tasted spinach soup at a nursery school in Sofia caused some “confusion” in the public, media reports said this week.
The sour expression on the minister’s face as he visited the school with Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova led many to conclude that the food given to school children is of bad quality.
Mayor Fandakova responded to the uproar by saying, "The problem was not that the food was bad but that Minister Naydenov doesn't like spinach.., The food in kindergartens is perfect."
I enjoyed two spinach dishes at Sofia restaurants this week and believe the local vegetable is quite tasty. I hope the school kids feel the same way.
