All,

 

is a fascinating infographic called What the World Eats on the National Geographic website based on data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN depicting what people around the world eat today, and how it has changed over the last 50 years. Its really fun (but sad) to see the growth in the US of percent calories coming from added sugar and fat, and the total calories consumed over the years. Its even more shocking that even on a per gram basis, American's eat more dairy and eggs than the do fruits and vegetables.

 

Here is a snapshot from the infographic of US data. On the website, you can click on each slice of the pie chart to see the types and percentages of foods that go into each slice.
