How worldwide diets are affecting what kids eat

Are we setting up the next generation to fail with bad eating habits?

More than 3.5 million children worldwide have type 2 diabetes & this number is only set to rise over the coming years.

With our global population becoming more intertwined every year, it’s quite interesting to pause & look at what impact globalization is having on our diets and more specifically, the diets of our youth.

The consumption of sugary drinks has increased by 1/3rd globally.

80% of the world’s young people aged 11-17 fail to get sufficient physical activity.

Unfortunately this is a recipe for disaster if nothing is done.

A photographer named Gregg Segal decided to create a book called “Daily Bread: What Kid’s Eat Around The World” which displays this global shift in eating habits by travelling to various countries to photograph the local children & all of the food that comprises their daily diet.

Here’s what he found.


UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


BRAZIL


MEXICO


ITALY


INDIA


KUALA LUMPUR


SENEGAL
