Presidential Dinner Menus, part 2 Today is President's Day and to celebrate we're continuing on last week's presidential food article. This second piece documents the food trends and presidential menus from the 1980s through today.

These decades contained presidents who were famous for the food habits, from Bush Sr's disdain for broccoli being documented on SNL and Clinton's love for fast food being covered by reporters everywhere to Bush Jr's pretzel fiasco and First Lady Obama's push for more nutritious eating programs throughout the country.

And while we were all aware of their every bites, our own eating habits changed from downing tri-color pasta salad and pre-made convenience foods to an demanding emphasis on organic and sustainable farming with the ever-growing green movement.

Read on for the recent trends and presidential state dinner tie-ins!

    Not even the President can escape food trends!

    I would love to see a side-by-side comparison of Clinton's diet in office vs. his current near-veganism....
