    It's more of a typical "per" country picture but interesting never the less.

    Also it's pretty interesting seeing how much US$5 will buy you around the world:

    It definately makes me think about what I buy.

    Very interesting!
    The british one is shockingly bad.
    And such a big difference between the USA photo and the Canadian photo considering how close they are geographically. Obviously not close diet wise.

    The Mexican family seem to be drinking a lot of soda!! But the rest was healthy.
    That Australian family... My gosh that is a lot of meat!!

    I think the Italian and Turkish ones looked the most balanced (bit too much bread though).

    Very interesting! DH has just gone out to get the groceries and it inspired us to get less processed stuff

    I think I'd stay with the German family, however, they didn't took too happy for saying how much beer/wine was on the table!

    Wow very interesting . My shopping isn't anywhere near any of those photos but it was interesting to see how much soft drink, chips and crap some households can eat in a week.
    I don't know where Mali is but I want to live there! They look healthy and happy
