New ethnic inspired menu at Hutt Hospital cooked up for patients

Hospital food isn't known for its silver service or award-winning cuisines but in the Hutt Valley, a new menu is simmering, sizzling, and boiling away.

Seven Sharp's Arrun Soma took a taste test with lead dietitian Andrea Palmer.

Watch the video above to find out how the cuisine stacks up to regular hospital food.
