That USA pic seems somewhat off. I know plenty of families that buy mucho fruits, veggies, and healthy snacks including myself. BTW I think this is a repost.

But it's nice to know that family supports my company by buying Mott's applesauce cups.

USA pic is a joke. Yea, Americans stop by KFC, Burger King, McDonalds, and order two pizzas at the grocery store. Bacon is in the front, chips hung in plain view. It's just a shot at our culture.

Sadly, our obesity rate begs to differ

Oh I agree, but I can't take the photos seriously when they went to extremes to get it accurate for the other places, and then watched Southpark for a week and based their opinion off of that for America.

Other than that, it really shows the different cultures.

That's the thing, though. I don't think it's far off for the "average" U.S. family; given that if a large % of Americans were not eating like that, we wouldn't have the obesity problem we have.

Wow, Brits and USA eat a lot of junk food. Not sure about the USA, but I know it is pretty true for the Brits. The food seems about right for Australia, but not so much the people in the photo, or the size of the family...

Mali, and most of all Chad

I found his series on a day's worth of food even more interesting.

All the soda for mex is accurate. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, it's disgusting.

Yes, it's not that accurate, add a stack of microwave tv dinners and we are set.
