What the World Eats

Some definite food for thought!  This slideshow from the book Hungry Planet takes a look at a week’s worth of food for families around the world.  What would your week look like?

  1. I really liked this photo essay! I wish it would have given one more piece of information, though – the percentage of total income each family spends on food. From what I understand, Americans spend less on food (based on percentage of total income) than most other countries in the world.

    • Hi Meghan!
      I agree, that would have been interesting to know. I have heard that the amount spent based on percentage of income is low for Americans, and has gone DOWN over time. Hungry Planet might be a book to put on the library list!
      Thanks for checking out my blog!

    • Yes, the whole article is based on the book! Didn’t realize there was a copy here…might have to check it out next time I’m there!
