Vegetables here means all food, excluding meat. People in China and India consume the most vegetables, the largest populations live in China and India. Food consumption per person varies less than other topics, because people need to attain a certain calorific intake to survive. Intake is lowest where people go hungry. Intake is highest where less meat is eaten.

A close inspection of vegetable consumption per person by territory indicates large variations. The biggest difference is that the average person living in Turkey consumes more than three times the daily vegetables that the average person living in Somalia consumes.

" there is always room for improvement and we challenge Americans to get fruits, get vegetables and get going to a healthier, happier you." Apu Mody, 2006

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide vegetable (vegetable here means everything except for meat) consumption that occurs there.
