We are always reminded by the media just how important a balanced diet is for us and it is key to stay on top of it in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As you can imagine, buying a balanced diet around the world will cost differently depending on where you go.

Data sourced from, HotelContractBeds created an infographic displayed the facts about a well-balanced diet for different countries around the world. From London, England to Cairo, Egypt, you can see how much a balanced diet would roughly cost you.

This is the initial shopping list:

  • Milk (0.25L)
  • Bread (130g)

  • Apples (0.34kg)
  • Oranges (0.34kg)
  • Tomatoes (0.21kg)
