In Oxfam’s new Global Food Table, Iceland scores a perfect mark for quality, nutritional diversity and safe water, reports RÚV.
Icelanders eat the most nutritionally diverse food according to new research by non-profit Oxfam. The Netherlands came in first place for the best overall nutritious, healthy and affordable diet, beating France and Switzerland into second place.
Chad, where food costs people two-and-a-half times more than other consumer goods has the overall worst score behind Ethiopia and Angola.
European countries occupy the entire Top 20 bar and Iceland would have scored higher but obesity and diabetes levels push it down the table to the 13th spot. Similarly, unhealthy eating pushed the US down to 21st place.
