What the World Eats
From Where Children Sleep, to what’s on family dinner tables around the globe?
Hungry Planet: What the World Eats features pictures of each family with a week’s worth of food purchases. We soon learn that diet is determined by largely uncontrollable forces like poverty, conflict and globalization, which can bring change with startling speed. Thus cultures can move, sometimes in a single jump, from traditional diets to the vexed plenty of global-food production.
People have more to eat and, too often, eat more of nutritionally questionable food. And their health suffers. You gotta give Germany props…where else would so much beer and wine be part of a food purchase.
