Food around the world is absolutely different from each other. Each one of it has its own story behind it. Traditions and culture play a role in the difference in food from one place to another. Photographer Gregg Segal showed a keen interest in what nutrition is for various kids of different countries. He wanted to analyze it a little deeper and for this project, he traveled around the world.
He being a photographer published a book named Daily Bread: What Kids Eat Around the World. For this book, he visited over nine countries in the past three years. “I focused on kids because eating habits start young and if you don’t get it right when you’re 9 or 10, it’s going to be a lot harder when you’re older,” said Gregg in an interview. He got inspired by one of his earlier project named 7 Days Of Garbage. Where he asked people to save garbage for a week and took pictures of them lying in it.

“I began to ask, “How have our diets been impacted by this revolution in the way food is produced and consumed?” It struck me that we don’t give enough thought to what’s in our food because we’re not the ones making it!” said Gregg. “We’ve outsourced the most vital ingredient of life, the connective tissue of families and culture. I thought, “What if we keep a journal of everything we eat and drink for one week to bring our focus onto diet & take ownership of the foods we eat?”, he added.
