Budget constraints prevent many people from eating right.
“I can’t afford to buy healthy food.” “Fruits and vegetables are too expensive.” “Grocery store prices are astronomical.” “It’s cheaper to eat fast food.”
We hear these “excuses” every day—and they’re good ones. But we don’t give up that easily and believe any excuse can be overcome. Today we’re setting out to prove that healthy eating is possible on any budget.
We compared the cost of unhealthy foods from the drive-thru, freezer section and snack foods aisle to the cost of healthy foods. By making even one of these swaps, you can make room in your grocery budget for a few new healthy foods.
