The Haitian Diet - Some examples of typical meals

Traditionally the consensus was the heavier a person, the better (healthier), made from scratch is good for you as opposed to canned or frozen. This has changed somewhat as we have seen health awareness and understanding reach the new generation in Haiti as well as the new generation abroad.

The list below was prepared from a medical history standpoint as it relates to interpreting for healthcare workers (specifically doctors/nutritionist/dietitians) trying to understand the typical daily diet of Haitian patients who are hypertensive and diabetic as they try to make recommendations or suggest substitutions to improve their patients' health.

Typical breakfast items include:

-Coffee (usually with cream and sugar) with bread and butter or peanut butter

-Hot/sweetened milk porridge made with cornmeal or cream of wheat served with slices of buttered bread

-Fried pastry filled with meat, eggs or smoked herring

-Spaghetti cooked with hot dogs cut into small pieces

-Scrambled eggs served with boiled plantains or slices of bread

-Yellow corneal

-Bread soup with potatoes

Typical lunch items consists of a snack but can be a full meal:
