This statistic is relevant because it shows that the U.S. overall eats more unhealthy food than Mali and that they over eat or eat bigger portions. This shows that the U.S. has more than enough food and does not struggle with food shortages. With Mali, it shows that the food is more healthy because most people eat food that was grown on the farms rather than U.S., where most people eat prepackaged food and fast food.
