Minister praises hospital meals (+ video)

Health Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman has praised the ''standard Kiwi fare'' he sampled at Dunedin Hospital today, and says there is ''nothing wrong'' with the meals.

Dr Coleman took part in the taste test today due to pressure over the meals in recent days because of publicity about meals.

He ate bolognese and pasta, a sandwich, and soup, and enjoyed them all.

Dr Coleman suggested people needed to adjust their expectations about what to expect when they are in hospital.

Fellow National MP Michael Woodhouse tweeted a picture of Dr Coleman "tucking into" the meal.
