This is an elaborate study of the food and home conditions of 800 labouring families. The diet is extremely monotonous, consisting almost entirely of coffee, rice, beans, codfish, vegetables and starchy carbohydrates. Most of the food is imported, for native vegetables and fruit, even when easily obtained, are very unpopular and home dairy produce is usually sold. In the tobacco and sugar zones conditions are better than in the coffee and fruit zones.
