Food for thought comprises a selection of facts and figures about food. Which foodstuffs are produced in the Netherlands, and which have to be imported? How much milk does an average Dutch cow produce? Where do the Dutch buy their food: in supermarkets alone, or also from baker’s and butcher’s shops and market stalls? Does a loaf of bread cost more than ten years ago? Or less? Will the demand for organic products continue to grow? And: are more women overweight than men?
These questions and many more are examined in this unique overview of food and health in the Netherlands.
