    An Irish mom more known for styling celebrities on TV show 'The Voice', was so outraged by a dinner served to her seven-year-old in a Dublin hospital that she's started a twitter campaign to improve the quality of hospital food.

    The offending meal was pie, chips (fries) and ketchup and lacked any sign of greenery or salady stuff - and the photo Ingrid Hoey tweeted directly at Health Minister Leo Varadkar is unlikely to figure in a stylish recipe book.

    It's embarrassing as it follows hot on the heels of the Minister joining the earlier efforts of a celebrity chef to improve the quality of food in Ireland's hospitals.

    Meanwhile elsewhere, purely by coincidence (I think), a journalist at Scotland's the Herald just tweeted this dietary advice :)

    Martin Williams (@Martin1Williams) tweeted at 9:55am - 24 Apr 15:

    Add zest to a boring salad by simply serving in a bread roll with a burger & ketchup (https://twitter.com/Martin1Williams/status/591510709038485504?s=17)

    Sausage rolls aren't really hospital pies :) I get one for my tea break every Friday. They aren't very good for you though. Holy smokes those chips look disgusting. Hospital food really should be better than that.

    Do they get a menu and pick choices like an American hospital? Is it limited by what diet the physician orders? My 15 year old was in Vanderbilt most of November 2014 & the food was excellent. He had choices off a regular diet menu.

    Broward County Florida hospital has a McDonalds in the lobby and as a patient you can have food from there brought to you fron a visitor.Most of the people eating at McDonalds are the Doctors and nurses.The first pie and chips do not look that bad compared to a big mac.

    The title of this thread sounds like a lyric from "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".

    Follow her down to the admitting desk
    Where outraged Irish stylists campaign against hospital pies
    Everyone smiles as you squirt out the ketchup
    On a pile of disgusting fries.
