    I can’t remember going to a restaurant when I was younger. Sometimes a “patatje met” (french Fries with mayonaise) which we ate as we walked or sat on a patk bench. Other than that, we would always eat home cooked

    The reason why people grow their own vegtables is that food use to be expensive and the older people during WW2 had hunger. And now it is just a hobby

    Don't make me laugh! The diet in the Netherlands is one of high in dairy, meat, sugar and processed flour products. They have one of the worlds highest rates of cardio vascular disease, alzheimer, arthritis and hip fractures, all due to the rich diet. The only plus is that they exercise more by cycling everywhere as the Netherlands is such a small and flat country with easier access to where they want to go.

    Food is pretty shit in the Netherlands to be honest. UK has much better supermarkets and selection of food. Supermarkets like Albert Heijn, Jumbo, Dirk etc are just about average quality and nothing to be praised. The Dutch love to eat junk too, they just cycle everywhere and burn off those extra calories. I've lived here for a number of years and the food is one of the downsides.

    The only really big great thing in America is the ego of the people. Het used to the Idea America is NOT the best country in the world.
    Not by far....
    Nature and the countrysides in America are amazing but the people are over the top and wat to obsessed by money!
    Americans are always proud on the most stupid things...always f*cking proud.
    We are more to the point and more humble.

    I'm surprised that the US was tied with Japan! I definitely feel like healthier food that is pre-prepared is more accessible in Japan. Also home-cooked traditional cuisine that has a variety of foods, rich in fish and vegetables is still standard.

    what might plays a role in our healthcare system is the fact tha solidarity is not a dirty word in Nederland, everybody is obliged to be health insured and the insurance companies are obliged to take every body young or old healthy or sick. if you stay healthy your whole life youre one of the lucky ones, yes you paid all your life (about 110 dollar for a basic insurance per month that includes doctor fees medicines (a few are exluded because to expensive) fees for specialist, the hospital bed and nursing, operations, surgery, operation room everything that you can think of. the few exeptions like dental, can be insured seperately,

    It is a matter of time till we Dutch have the same bad habbits as the Americans, I see a negative change already with when I was a child. 30 yrs ago my mother simply cooked 7 days a week, no matter what. Now people always have reasons to go for take away food, hot weather, no time or even I cannot decide what to cook.Also in my childhood everybody sat around the table and only lousy people ate on the couch. Now it becomes quit normal for a lot of Dutch people to eat on the couch. I think we have to be more conscious in order to keep the good habbits from our parents, myself included.

    Which is exactly why we should stop watching (too much) American T.v. and/or glamourize doughnuts and hamburgers.
    I will admit, I joined the cupcake-craze and have watched my fair share of TLC, but I'm still at a normal weight and I put all the decorative cupcakes away, so they wouldn't constantly make me hungry.
    Instead, there's water-waves and ice-skates on the display now.

    It is not only the Abundance of healthy foods: in the Netherlands unhealthy food products are often cheaper than the healthy ones. The Dutch also have a correlation between healthy feeding habits and socioeconomic status. The income inequality is way less than in the USA and it seems to me there is a moderating effect of culture too. Dutch Calvinistic culture screams for moderation. Enjoy, but certainly don’t overdo it. Portions are trimmed to economically efficient proportions as well. In Dutch restaurants don’t expect to get stuffed. Enough is all you will get and there are all you can eat restaurants that will charge you extra for the stuff you took but couldn’t eat anymore.

    What a big difference is is the fact that we in the Netherlands don´t have to go far to get
    to a supermarket. Yes they are smaller, but I can get to it on my bicycle, and buy fresh
    products in a range of 1 kilometer in 3 different supermarkets every day.

    We have small supermarkets all over town, where they sell fresh produce at regular prices. You can walk there, or ride a bike, and so we do, almost every day, for fresh food. We don't need to buy in bulk, once a month, and all processed foods, to a giant supermarket 10 miles out of town.

    Americans are often critical about the Dutch tax system, because all the ‘free’ stuff is ultimately paid by the tax payer. However, ‘free’ meals at schools are unheard of in the Netherlands, it is considered normal to bring your own lunch. It is basically the other way around, which is quite weird when you think about it.

    I do grow my own vegetables and fruits. it's the only way to be sure my family eat healthy. but there aren't a lot of people here that have the time or want to do the extra work....
    I never eat canned stuff. i cook from scratch and I use enormous amounts of fresh veggies. we never eat white bread. once or twice a month we eat pizza or fries.
    The netherlands aren't known for their fancy cuisine. It's very basic. potato's, vegetables and a bit of meat. pretty boring you would say but I grew up with it and I really like it. on the other hand I like to cook meals from different countries. we like the variation.
    most people I know eat potato's 3/4 times a week, rice and pasta's the rest of the week.
    BTW.....I'm dutch(frisian) but i really hate to cycle! I rather walk.

    Lol where did they reseached all this? Our junkfood can also cheep, we just take the time to cook at home more instead of going out everyday. The majority has takeout 1 to 4 times a month. (were prone to make the even cheeper version at home, yes there comes the stereotype we like cheep) And some people would have a little party, if they can buy some fresh fruit and veggies instead of canned food, because they can be expensive. And a nother thing we bike A LOT, that's very good for your health. Less chance of getting fat and diabetis.

    Not all is exactly as described below in different replies/answers.
    Just, Fr example to add something.
    The dutch follow slowly the global mainstream towards human habits and food trends and seduction by adictive mostly sugar bursting, tempting goodies/snacks and junkfood.
    Pretty, still traditional , projection of a average Dutch family household is still picturing the general overall stereotype family of four members average. Witch significantly showing a traditional role devided tasks, responsibilities, devotions and expectations. Father is earning the main income. Mothers is staying at home being the traditional housewife responsible for taking care of the household and bring up the kids (raise) . Early past dutch society this stayed the main task and destiny concerning the family female part of her life/career. As for nowadays they don't always one a kind of career as logic evolving the undertaken education instead of the past time assumption and aspectations as well as personal admiration combined into a untameable hunger towards individual exploration of its own education/knowledge/intellect inspired through personal talent, ambition, interest or slightly, going far as heavy guidance, moving/pushed into a certain direction of education.
    Still most popular in dutch society (moving towards double career partners) is a bit of both. Old/traditional and modern parents-ship . Meaning...... mom stays at home, taking care of the children. At least /until they are responsible and old enough to be independent of managing the daily routine and tasks, responsibilities and aspectations
    About the kids .....its all the same in almost each family and can, category-wise be narrowed down to two overall assumed point of view of the parents concerning education and job-perpectives. The ones who achieve good grates motivate them to aim for the highest possible educational achievement in te direction of personal inrerest combined over viewing the information about job opportunities. The ones who are more practical orientated instead of high education. Point out skills and capacity /talent and choose best suited job-practice(al) orientated school.
    stereotyped dutch family, are the foundations of the solid ordained dutch society. Providing a responsible (as thought/teached) three times a day descent and mostly old fashioned meal accompanied with a lot of dairy products. The dutch have the lowest lactose-intolerance-rates in the world.
    Just a extra point mentionable; the Dutch are globally the tallest people/nation.
    Further details:
    My father was direction board executive of a ( dutch direct translation ) vegetable and fruit auction house / instance constructed by format of a Cooperation ( to serve/fallicitate, non;, objecting achievements of, profit conceiving/focused main values/end achievement ) who have aimed their national targets and consolidations proceding top of the bill agricultural advancement and global top rated leadership and ultimate leading role concerning domesticate evoluting agricultural products/goods/vegetables/seeds and growing processes/techn(ics)ology. Resulting in a availability of agricultural products in high volumes/quantities resulting low self/own consumers prices. Providing the low'-incomes households free overproduction goods distributed through so called free good/food(s)-banks , too which the poorest people aplied for after monitoration by social instance.
    The problem is in contradiction towards the other given opinions here . Or differently formulated..... adding a trouble-shooting issue is the western human society AGENDA AND TIME-MANAGEMENT. Foremost coming along the growing numbers of ever more convertion of households including two working parents full agenda, overloaded obligation/appointments, personal demanding needs and wishes and image fulfillment. Luckily when
    triumphed in the past by slowing down the worldwide procedings . Thanks through a big proportion of institutes and statisticy and social/trend-watchers who passes a continuing advice effort through to the governmental institutes to follow it up by educating and informing the public society. Warning them about possible consequences ib our near future.
    And let them (other enteties) laugh about our way conceiving things and thoughts by joking about having a habit arranging a meeting about the last meeting and that everybody has a say and express their opinion and adjusting ideas along someone else his/her idea or point of order.
    We have shown that as small of a country that we are . We have genes that provided us, from generation to generation (see time apse dutch history) able to contribute world society,providing them, throughout history, making, conceiving, out-of-the-way box idea thinking, providing and inventing , educating and guiding humanity by sharing distributing our 'forwards helping' ideas and inventions.
    Resulting also in fulfilling a high demand for top accupations of expertise and top ranked leading position functionaries of Dutch executives and field/bramche expertise/experts continued throughout proven results and fulfilled expectations achieved through passed on experience.
    We dare to say, and largely have already proven that we are blessed by our genes that makes and provides us skills and the abilities proclaiming possessing most allround, clever, intelligent and advanced capabilities.
    And here comes the biggest dare . I am convinced by calling/saying out loud the following statement . We Dutch people are capable of be the most out spoken nationality with the highest allrounded achieving all levels scoring top ranking country in the world able to make or propose a or several innovtion in almost every branche or field of expertise in any categories.
    Oeps now I have gone to far. This is actually nothing like us , this behaviour is what we normally condemned. This sounds almost more like an redneck yank, so lauded about themselves. Uhlk yak filth oew damned me.....
    Excuses for my grammar.
    This is due the fact of undergoing
    only two years of English education (own choice) in contradiction to fellow countrymen, especially our youth of te last 15-20 years till now. Who enjoy(ed) the education of three compulsory foreign languages.
    Starting with easyv basic English vocabulary at the age of 6 continued at a later stage/age with obliged lessons in German and French and for some greek and/or Latin
    Well that's enough (already to much writing) for today

    People do not think of the costs of their combined healthcare systems whenever they stuff their faces with cheap junkfood, they think about not wanting to look like a pig in the long run. As compared to short-term thinking that I notice a lot amongst my US classmates, on financial but also health related topics, western Europeans seem to take the future effects of their current actions into account more. Everyone knows which food will fatten you and which will make you "Instagram worthy".

    Affordable and cheap? When a cauliflower sets you back EUR 2,49, a pound of strawberries costs the same during the height of summer, I don't think the word 'cheap' applies anymore. Sure, if you want to eat the same things all the time, you can make that claim. But many foods are expensive and can't be afforded by those with low incomes.

    The big difference:
    Americans go shop for food once in 2 weeks.
    The dutch almost every day, they take the bike for 2 min to their local grocery store and buy their dinner items they need.
    Food that is high in sugar and fat stays good for a longer period, so the american can get away with doing groceries only once a week or 2 weeks.
    The dutch can take fresh food every day, and are consequently eating fresh food more.

    On average (let me repeat that 2x).. we've bought less into the pseudo-scientific Ancel Keys myth of artery clogging saturated fat, so the anti fat (pro carb) health craze was only modest over here when the horrible eighties arrived ;) People still use real butter instead of inflammatory margerine, they eat plenty of free range eggs, they still eat a lot of full fat products (lean chicken breast, blech..) and our cows are usually pastured and grass fed. Also, not a lot of HFCS is used over here and that by itself makes a huge difference. Last, but not least: the drinking water over here is superior in terms of not having been chlorinated and fluoridated. A growing concern however, is with contamination by Sonmanto's poisons (square-down). That's why we need to keep TTIP out of here.

  • Veneil

    I live in Australia where people don't seem to want anything but white bread. And not just white, but soft, mushy WHITE white that feels and tastes like a wet chamois cloth. Just absolutely revolting. But it's what people want and supermarket shelves are packed with long rows of this stuff, with the (apparently) extra selling point that it's "extra soft". One can only conclude Australians don't have teeth. They do have small quantities of something sold as "wholemeal bread" which is, in most supermarkets, the closest thing to "brown" bread but is usually offered in a variety of shades of grey from whitish to a greyish brown. It gets dry very quickly and I find it inedible. It's my never-ending gripe in Australia. They simply don't know what good bread is and even if you'd offer it they wouldn't eat it!

      The cheapest area for that is probably Friesland. Be aware though America is pushing this trade agreement TTIP making it possible for them to export their toxic's disguised as foods to Europe soon...

      Nee. De EU heeft alle vormen van GMO's verboden. Volgens mij is het om de boeren in Europa te verdedigen maar ze zijn in ieder geval niet toegestaan.

      +QuMiJo het gerecht draait niet om de aardappel, je kan het weglaten zonder dat er niet meer sprake is van bv andijviestamppot. Smaakt alleen minder. Tevens heet het niet voor niets ANDIJVIE*stamppot en niet AARDAPPEL*stampot. Patat is niet per se een Nederlands gerecht, en patat met mayo en patat met curry zijn geen 2 verschillende gerechten, gewoon 2 variaties van hetzelfde gerecht. Tevens gaat het mij niet erom dat het er 100 moeten zijn, het gaat mij erom er niet veel gerechten zijn waar zonder de aardappel er niet meer sprake is van een NEDERLANDS* gerecht.

      *kan geen strepen onder het woord zetten dus benadruk ik het met hoofdletter, komt wat dreigend over maar niet zo bedoeld.

      Het is letterlijk onmisbaar in de stampot. Aardappel is het meest dominante voedsel in de Nederlandse keuken. Er zijn sowieso al 50+ varianten van patat gerechten dus 100 wordt makkelijk geraakt

    • tijmen131
      tijmen131 2 years ago

      Stampot is niet ''100 different ways of potato'' het zit erin verwerkt maar daar draait het gerecht niet om. En ik heb het over eten, niet over maaltijden. Dus alles wat ik noem is gewoon correct.

      Hahahha laat me niet lachen man, denk eens even na voordat je comment. Ten eerste ben ik Nederlands, ten tweede zijn stampotten allemaal aardappel, heb je er nooit een gegeten? andijviestampot is letterlijk andijvie+aardappel samengeperst = boerenkool. Verder gaat het hiet om eten en cuisine, die nederland niet echt heeft. We hebben idd snacks zoals stroopwafels en pepernoten maar de tellen niet als avondeten (pannekoeken tellen wel als ontbijt). Een echte nederlandse avondmaal bestaat uit aardappel, een portie groente en een klein stukje vlees.

      QuMiJo than you probably have never eaten dutch food cause potato's are not the basics of dutch meals, you have haring (met ui), pannekoeken, poffertjes, stroopwafels, pepernoten boerenkoolstampot,wortelstampot, zuurkoolstampot,hete bliksem

      damien But we do have many tuintjes where people grow their food as a hobby. They are many. Now in my city there are many more in every part of the city for people to grow vegetables. We have at least one garden in every district wijk. In my district we have two big gardens

      +de nielsvlog Erm... It is true. I don't know where you live but I live near Zwolle at the moment, more near the forests. I used to live in Rotterdam and near Assen. And a lot of people do grow their own food. I see and have seen it all around me... Indeed most people live very near supermarkets, but it doesn't mean they do not grow some of their foods themselves...!

      Erm actually a lot of people do. "Volkstuintjes" are still a big thing. Most people living in the countryside (platteland) grow some small vegetables and fruits (even just three different things) and a lot of people have fresh herbs in pots growing in their kitchen etc... And then we have people with big gardens that share their homegrown foods with friends and family...

    I'm dutch and I love it how quite often when I have a conversation about food with people from other countries they are like "yeah , what you guys eat is pretty healthy but you eat too much bread , bread is unhealthy".
    Like no , our diet revoles around eating bread morning and lunch, so if bread is unhealthy our diet would be unhealty.
    Your bread just has tons of sugar in it , and it's mostly white bread.

    • Roland ten Napel
      Roland ten Napel 2 years ago +1

      Exactly, it's the grains that keep your stomach acids busy, and thus keeps you from getting 'hungry' again real fast, and that's not even talking about the nutritional value of non-white breads and how much of that value is actually absorbed by the body because it takes longer to digest. And then there is the more 'substantive' stool it also results in...

      There is alot more bread than whitebread in the Netherlands, try those with nuts and seeds on its crust or brownbread.

    There's a lot of great lunch places and restaurants here in the Netherlands too, we have junk food but in any city its quite easy to find a healthier alternative thats not even that much more expensive. Occasionly fast food is nice, like maybe four times a year or such. I tend to only eat it when on the road or otherwise not having time for a more elaborate lunch. But it just cant beat a properly made salmon sandwich.

    There difference is not in the food. It's cycling. Dutch cycle to school, to work, for shopping and for recreation. That adds healthy years to the Dutch lifespan.
