Due to many reasons people all over the world have different composition of their daily diet. Here we suggest you to look at how the composition of daily diet varies across different countries with the change of per capita income. People in high income countries consume more vegetable oils, sugar and sweeteners, milk and meat. With the decrease of income among countries, consumption of cereals accounts for bigger share of daily diet. People living at extreme poverty level consume much more starchy roots.
Name of each country on the chart below is followed by value of gross national income (GNI) per capita in current US$ for 2009 (source: The World Bank, World Development Indicators, April 2012). Data on composition of daily diet was calculated on a basis of Food Balance Sheets, released by FAO in June 2010.
