Barack Obama not eating broccoli

During a surprise visit to the kids' "state dinner," President Barack Obama told a student his favorite food was broccoli.

Yahoo News producer Max Zimbert dug through the archives to find photographic evidence. He couldn't find broccoli, but did find photos of the president enjoying hot dogs, ice cream and beer--a lot of beer.

FILE - In this Aug. 14, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama stops for a beer at The Pump House, a pub and grill, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Obama and his team frequently talk about the president's fondness for beer, and Obama has been photographed many times downing a beer, including an appearance at the Iowa State Fair last month. Being identified as a beer drinker is an easy way for Obama to connect with votes and serves as a not-so-subtle reminder that his Republican rival Mitt Romney, a Mormon, doesn't drink.
