I am going to go with False. Though I hear it all the time online that it is too expensive to eat healthy. Not that we eat health 100% of the time but I feel we eat a fairly balanced diet and I try to a bit health conscious of my choices as far as offering a wide selection of fruits and veggies and a variety of different foods.
I can not imagine that being cheaper. Sure hot dogs are cheap but unless you are eating those every night of the week I can certainly feed my family cheap and healthy at a very modest budget. Eggs and dried beans are good lean proteins, fresh and frozen veggies are cheaper and more filling than french fries and banana's are less than $.50 a pound. Not to mention peanut butter and whole wheat bread. Water is as cheap as it gets for drinking and honestly you only need 16 oz of dairy a day and cheese and yogurt count. 'Managers Specials', coupons and mark downs also help. Shopping sales and meal planning. I can get out on a maximum of $50 a week to feed my family of 4 and that is with a bag of cookies or a can or chocolate milk mix!
what do you think?

For those of us who are NOT Rachel Ray, or have children in activities & things get hectic, you do what you have to do. I do buy more fruits in the summertime b/c we prefer the seasonal fruits, but those get expensive when it's out of season. I am a coupon & sale shopper, so I feel like I'm doing the best I can, while knowing what they will eat & what will end up getting thrown out.

Yeah, $50 would not last my family more than a few days, but my kids are much older. We go thru 1 gal milk a day, 2 rolls of toilet paper, (I know that's not food, but still has to be factored into the shopping budget) and the box of Raisin Bran Crunch I bought on Friday, is gone already. The bananas I got to cut up & put on the cereal or have for a snack, only 1 left. Today is Monday, I shopped on Friday!
