I came across this article on Twitter this morning. And it caused me pause. The images are from the book ‘Hungry Planet: What the World Eats’ by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluision. The family portraits feature pictures of families from around the world with a week’s worth of food purchases.
I was shocked to see the amount of processed foods where shown. Especially in the American families featured. In fact often, processed foods accounted for between 75-85% of all the food eaten in a week.
What are we doing? And how do we change our food habits?
