Food for thought – women, children and global nutrition

“When can we do the spreadsheet?” I asked Boyfriend eagerly. “Can we do it now? I have a formula I want to put in!” We were doing some accounts, and trying to make everything balance. It was very exciting.

He shook his head at me and gave me a pitying look.

Well I’m very sorry but I like spreadsheets. I also like infographics, which is why I was so excited when I got the Information is Beautiful book for Christmas, and why today I’m sharing this, about women and nutrition. I find it shameful that while I sit here, full of Peaches and Cream milkshake from my little mid-morning outing with Bishopston Mum, two billion people lack the basic daily nutrition they need.

Food for thought indeed.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one on the planet who loves a good spreadsheet. Everyone thinks I’m mad, but there are others, I’m no longer alone!

    I’ve got spreadsheets galore, nothing too technical but very helpful none the less!

    I think I would love spreadsheets but I have never tried one. I’m almost scared too incase it’s a gateway anally retentive tool, because I’m frankly uptight enough.

      Goodness. Probably best you don’t then. It is the food of anal retentives.
