Fruit Stand In A Residential Area

There was a fruit stand in a street corner in the residential area

When I wandered around in the residential area in Jakarta, I found a fruit stall. I've seen many stalls in residential areas, but I don't think I've ever seen a stall that sells fruits but only light meals.

In Indonesia, a tropical country, various kinds of fruits are sold at fruit and vegetable shops. Durian, which is called the king of fruits, is also sold. However, seeing that there are not many stalls selling fruit, it may be that Indonesians do not have the custom of eating fruit when they are hungry.

According to the data from the International Food and Agriculture Organization, the amount of fruit consumed per person per day in Indonesia is about 180 grams, which is more than Japan's, but less than the world average of 200 grams, so it is rather low.

If you look at the ranking of fruit consumption in each country, you will notice that many Western countries are at the top. The average in North America is about 275 grams, and the average in Europe is also about 250 grams, which is a lot. There seems to be a correlation between the daily consumption of fruits and income. As is the case in Japan, the fruit is relatively high compared to other foods. If one's income is not high, one may not be able to eat fruit on a daily basis.
