Here is a follow up to the portion sizes blog from last week. What is eaten in one week around the world? Very interesting assortment. Note the large amount of drinks in some pictures.
Take a good look at the family size & diet of each country, and the availability & cost of what is eaten in one week.

Germany: The Melander family of Bargteheide
