The event was organised by the European Association of Chefs EuroToques and the European Commission Representation in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian Minister for Agriculture demonstrated his sandwich-making skills along with TV culinary hosts. As child obesity shapes up as a common problem across the European Union, the initiative helped teach children about balanced and varied diet as an alternative to snacks and fast food. This was the fifth year in a row when the European Day of Healthy Food and Cooking was marked in Bulgaria where, according to 2011 statistics, over 30 percent of children are overweight or obese.
