This is an interesting article about the contrasts in the eating habits of 30 families around the world and showing what they buy every week.

I think the two photos that stand out the most for me are the ones of the family of 12 from Bhutan and the family of 4 from Germany and the difference in the amount of food they buy to get through the week.

It is also interesting to note who lives on processed food, and who lives on mostly fresh foods. Considering how much sugar andf other refined carbs there are in processed food, another interesting statistic would be the average weight of the people... :-)

There is no way those Germans eat all that in one week.
But food looks expensive in some places.

Id say we spend an avg of R500 to R800 on food a week. How about you guys?

Interesting stuff mdg,thanks for linking.

About right, yes. But that also includes the run-of-the-mill non food grocery items like toiletries and cleaning products. What's that in English money ... about 30 to 40 #?

I spend on average R500 at the local Spar every week for bread/milk and whatever I ran out of grocery wise (and chocolates - we have a chocolate in the lunch box every day).

My meat bill comes to around R1000 per month and the rest of the groceries which includes cleaning materials to around R2000 in total.
