What the World Eats- World Studies Project




Choose five families from five continents to analyze. For each family, provide the following information:

-Name of the family
-Location (City, Country)
-Average life expectancy (males and females)
-Total cost of food for one week
-Number of people in the household
-Cost of food divided by the number of people in household
-General observations (Too much food or too little food? Healthy or unhealthy food?)
-Factors likely contributing to food availability and food choices for each family
