The European Union has tried a couple of times to introduce FDA-style labels showing a standard nutritional calculus on food packaging. But they can’t get it done because there’s just no interest in it. No one wants or needs it because Europeans are not agonizing over the grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in their foods.
The French don’t go to the store to buy grams of this or that. They go to buy food-mountains more fruits and vegetables than we Americans do. They choose fresh produce every day and then build a meal around those items. As a result of their focus on fruits and vegetables, the French typically eat more than five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. In contrast, Americans eat just three.
