What did they eat?

Most Dutch settlers brought seeds—for grains, greens, vegetables, and fruit trees and bushes—with them. They also owned European livestock—such as cows, horses, sheep, goats, and pigs. Much of what the settlers ate was what they had eaten back in Europe. But living in North America, they learned from the Indians to add new foods to their diet—particularly corn and squash.

Colonial Food ***

Colonial Food
Colonial food in the late 1700's was varied and abundant. By 1775 all of the 13 colonies had been established and there was a population of 2.5 million people. Life in the New England colonies focussed on town life and people worked in industries such as whaling and ship building. New England imported agricultural products from other colonies. The majority of people in the Middle Colonies worked on small farms and home-grown food was in good supply. The warm climate made it possible to grow crops throughout the year in the Southern colonies and was ideally suited for plantations and farming. Food in Colonial America was plentiful and included a lot of meat and vegetables.

European Settlers Food

When the settlers arrived in America, they brought their own cooking traditions with them, but they had to adapt them to the harsh living conditions of the new colonies. They went without supplies from England, such as sugar and butter, for months and even years, so they incorporated foods and cooking methods learned from Native Americans.

16th Century Settlements

Hundreds of thousands of Indians already called Florida home when Europeans first arrived in the early 16th century. But it did not take long for the ensuing wars, slave trade and European diseases to nearly wipe out the aboriginal population.

Food – Te Ara Encyclopedia of New Zealand

Much of New Zealand’s cuisine has British origins, as did most of New Zealand’s settlers. New Zealanders traditionally ate a lot of meat because of the country’s widespread farming. Over the 20th century consumption of meat dropped, partly due to growing knowledge about the health effects of saturated fats.
