Description

“Despite the wide availability of affordable fresh food in the country, Brazilians are increasingly consuming processed low-nutritional food products, skipping meals, and focusing on convenient products. They are making up for bad food habits by exercising more and doing more sports, but without a balanced diet this might not be enough.”

– Sheila Salina, Lifestyle Analyst
