Summary

Each group of items costs 30 Ksh. Food items clockwise: cabbage and two onions; 5 large eggs, 6 tomatoes; 1/2 kg of white rice; 6 bananas; 1 kg white potatoes; a loaf of bread and greens; 3 ears of fresh corn; 1 kg of Mahindi flour for ugali. By using a CooKit or other solar cooker, people can buy food instead of fuel.

When using this image for educational purposes, ask viewers to also consider which of those foods—aside from issues of contaminated water that may mean NO produce is safe to eat raw in a given region—are edible or palatable without cooking. Many people may not realize that in some parts of the world, most of the available or affordable foods are staples that must be cooked to be eaten, especially the more nutritious ones. For these people, not cooking means not eating enough to live or for children to grow. In this image, the most all-round nutritionally complete food shown is the potato (if the layer just under the skin is consumed as well as the middle), but raw potato is not particularly palatable or digestible. To maintain health with the foodstuffs available to them, people in the developing world must have the ability to cook. This is a very good image for generating productive discussions that help people to understand culture and concerns that are different from their own framework.
