What the world eats

I would like to think we eat like Italy or Mexico, in reality tis more like USA or UK

India

Canada I think though sadly with less fish. The British one had an incredible amount of processed food and chooclate. We have some but for the most part its fresh fruit, veg and meat though we I do buy quite a few jars of sauces and the odd fish finger grin

Britain

I was more fascinated by the way each family laid out the stuff - Germany for instance completely following the stereotype

It's really interesting. I'm staggered by how few fruit and veg are on most displays.

I'm veggie anyway, so none of them really look like mine.

Mine would prob be 50% fruit/veg, 25% carbs, 15% crappy crisps and processed foods, 10% booze and fruit juice.

which stereotype?

AvrilPoisson Sat 27-Apr-13 22:34:13

I too was astonished by the coke for the Mexicans!

All that lovely fresh fruit and veg, and then bottles and bottles of syrupy stuff...

Mixture Britain, Italy and France grin

Canada probably.

The "everything perfectly organised" stereotype. It looks like they had a ruler to get everything straight and lined up. I'm not slating them, I could do with a bit of that OCD smile

Australia without fizzy drinks and sweets.

Coffeeformeplease Sat 27-Apr-13 22:40:22

I see. I didn't notice but now you've said it smile

Goodness those last few pictures were stark - all carbs and so little protein. The Chad family really brings home the wanton wastefullness of the Western world.

Didn't feel we were really like many of the pictures, maybe France or Canada, but without the meat - many more pulses.

The meat in the Aussie one was just boggling!

you should see our house - I'm sure I have a genetic defect concerning tidyness ...

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Sat 27-Apr-13 22:43:10

somewhere between canada germany and france.

Hmm - maybe it's just that all the things they have bought lend themselves to being organised rather than the more random shopping of the other countries... bit shocked about the amount of meat the Aussies have!

Mexicans drink an amazing amount of soft drinks. Coca Cola Mexico makes a sweeter version for that market alone ! They have a lovely fizzy apple drink called Sidral as well.

Coffeeformeplease Sat 27-Apr-13 22:45:51

the Aussies chuck it all on the Barbie

BatmanLovesVodkaAndCherryade Sat 27-Apr-13 22:46:54

That was the first thing I noticed about Germany too!

And how much meat in Australia? shock

TwuntingCrow Sat 27-Apr-13 22:47:12

Most like Germany here ..

hiddenhome Sat 27-Apr-13 22:47:54

Probably Germany smile

thenightsky Sat 27-Apr-13 22:48:54

That is an amazing set of pictures. I reckon we are mostly France and Poland with a bit of Italy.

CoolStoryBro Sat 27-Apr-13 22:49:32

Canada, I guess.

I find the Chad photo quite sad.

Do you think these photos are from some time ago? In the British one, the house/clothes/hair look like a bit of a throwback.
