We are interested in the makeup of food supplies (ex. meat, produce) in countries around the world.


We aim to build a data game or an interactive visualization to teach people how countries’ food supplies are structured and to encourage them to improve their diets.


We look at the following dataset by the Food and Agriculture organization of the United Nations.


The ratio of the supply of meat to vegetables is 0.97 in the U.S., 0.14 in China, and 0.05 in India – the food supply makeups of the three most popular countries are quite different! We want to food policymaking to consider these differences and we want readers to observe how this is reflected in the diets of people around the world.
