Countries With Healthiest Food
The Top Ten
As a man who've lived in Japan and enjoyed the real Japanese food, I can say proudly that it is one of the best food in the world with rich history. It's less oily but you can eat a lot of vegetables, and its calories are really few so good for your diet too. Also go and search "beautiful Japanese food" on Google. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at how colourful and attractive they are... Promise! :D
If you think you can eat only raw sushi and vegetables at Japanese restaurant, you've been to the wrong one for sure... Aw poor you :( The real ones are made with so much cares and take a long time to cook. Seriously, be careful to the ones that are ran by non-Japanese people with no previous working experience at restaurant in Japan at all... It's totally different from the original... eww disgusting... (even if the restaurant people looks like Asian, they may not be from Japan but like Korea or China... I know it's hard to tell.. )
I m Japanese chef I know how they are having healthy food
Yeah I really agree that's why they have the longest exxistences of people on earth
I suppose their food is healthy and longer life spans to other countries...
but in my opinion don't go to Japan and find a restaurant that serves "fugu"
"Poison, poison, tasty fish"
Indian food is not healthy at all. Indians eat too much spicy food, too much mutton meat, too much ghee, and high sugar level food. India has one of the highest rate diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. Plus, India's life expectancy is merely 65 years old, on par with Russia.
I'm glad that Indian food is healthy, which it is.
Indian spices are very healthy. I also like the taste of them.
Every Indian curry contains turmaric which a strong anti oxident which will boosts metabolism and immunity like a pro..61 Comments
In France they eat lots of diverse vegetables, fruits, fishes and meats.
Their meals are really complete even if in certain regions they are still using maybe too much fat (butter or meat). In general they have eat import large amount of food from the whole world (Rices, cereals, Asian food, African food..).
And the ratio of healthy food and oil is increasing (Quinoa, wild rices, canola oil, colza oil, walnut oil...)
The ratio of obesity is one of the lowest among the so-called Western countries.
Base of French food are vegetables, rices, grain, fishes. Meat, sauces, fries are also part of French food but only eaten in certain occasions and only for a certain part of people. It's usual in France to eat for lunch only a large mixed salad and fruit for lunch and a vegetable soup, rice (or similar) and fruit for diner. They lot also lots of cereals like Americans (and from same US trade marks). Really good and healthy, the king for Atlantic fishes including the famous blue Lobster.
I LOVE chocolate French desserts!
Red wine and lots of vegetables are part of the diet.
Healthy food in term of quality and high level of controls.
In some part in North of France too much fat is used, that's true.
But things are changing from bad fat like palm oil to more excellent oil like canola (rapeseed) oil.
Lots of different rices, vegetables, fruits, fishes, meats and all that nicely cooked.
Each region has its different main own dishes.
And France is the country of bread and not only baguette but more than thousand of different breads, and also croissants, eclair, macron etc...
Health results also from pleasure of eating.
We have fresh food growing in our country and fresh ingredient in our backyard. We buy fresh food from the market each day from local growing. We love eat fresh fish from fish farm and fresh meat from butcher each day. We cook food each day and Thai people do not like keep their food in the freezer and eating fresh food daily.
A lot of Herbs and vegetables. Good taste and good look.
Yum n healthy
I think thai food overall is healthy. a lot of its dishes has coconut milk that is high in fat but good fat. there is a lot of herbs and seafood that thais utilize. it is not a meat -potato heavy cuisine. if you ever tried making thai food the ingredients usually is a page long sometimes even longer. it consist of ingredients that I [westerners] cease to know existed with so much history. all of this combined perfectly to have a balance flavor. wish I can move to thailand even if its for a year and learn how to cook
I have ever tried pho. Lol this is unPHOgetable
Best in the world
Vegetables with EVERYTHING! So healthy but so DELICIOUS!
It should rank higher than this. Not many other cuisines on this list have successfully minimised their dependence on oil usage or maintained the fine balance between freshness of herbs and spices with the meat components than Vietnamese.4 Comments
Korean kimchi and other brewed food are very healthy. They have lots of vitamin and minerals and protein and everything, I assured you. They may be seen as a bit disgusting or unusual food to other countries and Western people, but it is scientifically proved that Korean food is tasty and good for your health. They can be salty, yes, I do admit that, but other nutrients backs up that flaw, so it is okay. We also use lots of vegetables, unlike Japan, which uses lots of fish and China, which uses lots of meats like pork and gammon.
Korean food history is more than three thousand years and it has developed into good, better ways. If you start eating Korean food, at first, you might feel gross and stuff, but if you keep eating, it will be quite addictive.
I'm Korean and I'll admit, a lot of salt goes in our food, however, our food includes so much vegetables. Practically every meal will include eating leafy greens, beans, roots, peppers, spices, and more.
Korean food and kimchi are very delicious and healthy.
The least healthy Korean food (ramen) has vegetables in it. Spicy doesn't mean unhealthy.9 Comments
Eat a lot of fish and fish is very healthy
Very few people lives in Iceland
I heard the Icelanders eat food that is practically 0% processed, and they only eat locally-grown stuff.
Far less obesity in Canada than in the USA and provinces like because have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, plus many wineries in southern because
Yes, really good organics vegetable here in Canada, desperate that people prefer eating fat and disgusting Italian pizzas.
What are we doing all the way down here
Lots of agriculture and meats. Not nearly as processed as the U.S.2 Comments
Filipino food can offer so many tropical fruits and vegetables no one has heard of outside of the country. Homemade filipino food really beats restaurant food, however.
It has delicious healthy foods fruits and vegetables so hope ya like it!
Food that will enjoy your palate and heal your soul
From all the raw fruits and stuff, Philippine food is good for health. Needs to be in top 5!3 Comments
All have to say wow the food is amazing the flavor in most salad dishes like Fatosh tabowley Fabulous Lebanese food is my favorite
It's the best
I'm an American and my family is Lebanese, so we eat the food, it is very healthy! - FandomsUnite
Perfect cuisine for vegetarians. Rich in vegetables and very tasty. Highlights: Hummus, Fattouch, Tabboule... ETC1 Comment
Italian food is easy to make. Italian food uses farm grown ingredients that are grown with out any use of antibiotics or preservatives. Not only that but the food tastes truly spectacular.
The well known Mediterranean diet and the use of simple, fresh and unprocessed ingredients, makes this cuisine easily the healthiest in the world. Italy has one of the highest life expectancy in the world, the healthy cuisine being the top factor.
Who said Mediterranean diet?
Italy is alarming on new figures show that it has a higher proportion of overweight children than anywhere in Europe.
Obesity rates in Italy two-year-olds are the highest in Europe with a rate of 42%.
Italy should be at the end of this list or even out of.
Bye bye Italy.
Pizza is yummy17 Comments
In Spain we have very natural & healthy food indeed so I think it should be upper in this list... or at least changed by England.
This is the same situation as Singapore...
Indonesian food rocks especially with all the spices
Too much variety of food, especially on taste
Beside Indonesian food is healthy, it is also cheap too, especially in warteg / angkringan :3

The Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest in the world. Plenty of fruits, vegetables, and heart-healthy fats. - ethanmeinster
It's a really good healthy place for a sports family trying to raise kids and getting involved in pro sports - cavsfan99
The real Mediterranean diet, no pizza, no pasta, only fresh and natural ingredients.3 Comments
The lesser known cuisine of Peru is starting to grab headlines and the world's attention. So much so, that at the recent World Travel Awards held in Delhi, Peru beat off strong competition from countries like Italy, China, Thailand, Mexico, Japan and France to take home (Peruvian marvelous land) the prize of "World's Leading Culinary Destination.
The foundation of Peru's rich culinary scene starts from its unique and rich landscape. With topographical regions that encompass an incredible 90 different micro-climates spanning sun soaked deserts, high altitude mountains and vast tropical jungles; Peru has the ability to produce a huge range of regular, exotic and even just outright bizarre ingredients.
Furthermore, not only is Peru blessed with vast land resources, it also has some of the richest seas in the world. Home to several hundred species of fish, Peru's nutrient-rich waters teem with high-value species like sea bass, mackerel, tuna, herring, anchoveta and ...more

The ceviche it's just amazing (fish)
Best food ever1 Comment
Real Chinese food is healthier and tastier than most Chinese food in america - InfernoTopTenners
We invented what you call Pasta, more known as Noodles, and not at all Italy, they are just able to copy.
Chinese pasta (noodles) are healthy and good compared to such disgusting Italian pasta spread all over the world polluting our plates.
I don't really like Chinese food in terms of health, but they are certainly better than Koreans.4 Comments
And the flag of Laos, one of the most healthy food you will ever eat, birth of noodles (known as pasta by those Italian robbers).
So many idiotic stereotypical comments on here. The United States of America is the most culturally and ethnically diverse country in the world. On every street corner, you will find a great range of restaurants and cuisines around the world, featuring Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and pretty much any cuisine around the world imaginable (if you go to the right places). The variety is endless if you aren't an ignorant who just goes to fast-food places every day like it's the only option around or something.
Oh and don't forget the Cajun foods down in the south!
What the heck? I'm from the US and can say that the healthiness of our food makes me want to ;_;
It’s good south of 38th latitude - I80
Coca-cola, Mcdonald's, Mac n Cheese, Greasy Fries? These are the MOST unhealthy foods I can think of in general...41 Comments
My mother cooks very healthy meals
Forget United States this food is very healthy
Sri Lanka should be in number 1 place.
Becuase Sri Lanka is a healthy country, there are lot of healthy things to eat. Sri Lanka is my country. My country is very clean,honest,peo and friendly. This country is a very beautiful
I've never had cuisine from Singapore, but I've heard it is quite healthy.
Singapore's food is not as healthy as some of the above countries like Japan or Korea, but it is definitely healthier that the USA
Singapore is one of the world's most unhealthiest or the most.The chefs there all use palm oil which is horrible for your body.The oil unlike olive oil cannot be digested.I live in singapore so I know.the oil sticks to the inner wall of the intestine or blood vessels blocking blood flow.And Singapore's diabetic rate is one of the world's highest as four of ten people have a kind of diabetes.Every minute one of four adults lose a limb to diabetes.Many of the delicacies or junk food have been artificially produced.So I will strongly advise you to not come to Singapore to visit.They also have one of the worlds most horrible tasting foods
Chicken rice, mince meat noodles, char kway teow, mee rebus, mee goreng, fried oyster eggs, chilli crab, duck rice, roti prata, fish curry head
We have most organic, healthy and delicious foods all around the world such as couscous, lablabi...
Imagine how the couscous is healthy, nothing compare with fat Italian food.
By the way in Italy or they don't know the couscous or they are really not able to cook one in a nice way.
Swedish food often is meatballs, fish, raw fish and vegetables! Our foods are often not processed and ar very healthy!
The only Swedish cuisine I've heard of is Swedish Meatballs, something healthy and tasty to eat.
Not true at all. We have very fat food to be honest. - Hampus
Swedish food should be in the top 10, it is much healthier than American food which is proccesed, the United States should even be in the bottom, what are America thinking3 Comments
Ok let's start off with that I am Irish and all our country ever eats is butter chips rashers sausages and lots of other fatty foods
I Am Irish And There Healthy Snack Chips
At least were not like america.
The sweets mostly have natural fruits and not overloaded with sugar. The meals barely have fried vegetables, mostly raw, but sometimes cooked. I don't get how Mexico is considered to have the highest obesity rate when the food is not so unhealthy. I actually been to Mexico and I mostly see people that are okay in weight. I am not fat and I'm Mexican, people should stop judging us.
Why down here? Mexican food isn’t chimichangas, burritos, nachos gringos. Mexican food is mostly real health being mostly shrimp, fish, octopus, cilantro, mint, zapote, coconuts, rice, black beans, peppers, tomatoes, chiles, tomatillos, chia seeds, pumpkin, chayote, chicken, cactus (nopales, agave, tunas, aloe Vera, pitaya), mangoes, avocados, vanilla, cacao, peanuts, mushrooms, ants, maize (corn), potatoes, squash
Mexican food being is mostly indigenous which is very healthy, there is Spanish, Lebanese, French, Caribbean, Cuban, African, Filipino influence which are all relatively healthy
The actual only reason for obesity is USA saying if we have obesity, Mexico has to be obese too so create NAFTA to ruin products & make the corn GMO in USA so yeah explains a lot.
French food actually isn’t healthy but quantities & quality is the key for French food to be healthy
Thanks to NAFTA Mexico has obesity because NAFTA says Mexico can’t make their corn so all the corn comes from USA which usually has GMO, MSG, pesticides, herbicides, preserves or whatever & because corn is a cash crop obesity is high because many people eat GMO corn from USA
The food in Mexico besides corn is mostly actually cactuses, ants, black beans, rice, goat, eggs, peanuts, coconuts, shrimp, garlic, fruits, chicken, chia seeds, pumpkins, cilantro, fish, chiles & more.. or at least in Veracruz that is what my family & I ate when their was food
Tex-Mex isn’t healthy though because USA decided hey let’s invade the west, murder all the “Native Americans” (aka indigenous Mexicans today Native Americans), & make the food unhealthy
But today more gringo influence is in Mexico so more foods are getting processed & with HFCS, refined flour, MSG, GMO & all that bad stuff or fast food like McDonald’s
So yeah, mostly Western influence is the problem ...more
They still cook at home
What? why is Ukraine on 39th place? Ukrainian food is life.
Iran has a wide variety of foods that are suitable for all kinds of people. For example, cooked rice with lentils and raisins (vegetarian option), sour cherry stew, celery stew, beans and mixed vegetables with rice and lamb, yogurt and cucumbers, eggplants cooked with tomatoes and rice, bean soup (lentils, kidney beans, onions, and many green vegetables), peach stew, rice with lima beans and green spices, carrot rice, rice with barberries and saffron, ice cream with pistachios, cauliflower rice, rice with lima beans, yogurt, and meat wrapped in grape leaves, rice with tiny bits of ground beef wrapped in cauliflower leaves, peppers filled with rice and tiny bits of ground beef. If you were to just take away the meat from these meals, they could all be vegetarian. It is a shame that most vegetarians do not have any knowledge upon these foods. It would be just a delight to see so many people trying Iranian food because kabobs have originated from Iran. Iranians mix so much vegetables and ...more
We have most organic and delicious foods all around the world
Just try Iranian food
