Drinks


Because of the hot weather in Brazil, people need to keep drinking. Fruit juices are also very popular, and they have special drink bars where they sell lots of fruit juice. They drink a lot of coconut juice and other tropical juice drinks, because they grow the fruit in the Amazon so it is cheap and easy to make. Gurana is a very special drink, made with lots of fruit from the Amazon, which all the kids love.

Food


People in Brazil eat lots of rice and black beans because they are very cheap to buy at the market and they make you feel full up. They also love sea food, such as crabs, lobsters and shrimps. There is Balian Cuisine, which is from the Amazon, and Feigoada dish, which is black beans with lots of different meats.

Sweets in Brazil are very similar to ours (e.g. Skittles, Twix, Crunchy, M&Ms, Milky Way), but some of them have different packaging (wrappers). They also have sweets that we don't have, such as an Almond Bar and Confetti Sweets.

Farming


Farmers can grow lots of different types of food in Brazil because there is a range of climates and soil because Brazil is such a massive place. However, most of the farming takes place in central Brazil because there a lot of land, while the northeast is too hot and dry to grow much. Brazilian farmers grow more sugar cane than anywhere else in the world. They keep animals for meat, and also grow lots crops, such as:
  • coffee, cocoa, sugar cane
  • red corn on the cob (like sweetcorn but red)
  • fruits, like oranges, lemons, limes, pineapples, apples and bananas
  • soy beans, black beans
  • wheat, rice, corn
  • tobacco
