I do not give out advice unless someone asks. I also do not tell people how to live.
That said, sometimes people ask for advice or ideas about how to feed their families.
I make healthy suggestions. I don't do it in an uppity or rude way. I just say, 'this is what I would make and this is why it is good for you' and leave it at that.
I find that even when I just suggest a recipe that I call 'healthy', people respond to me as if I am a complete health nut and are really very rude about it.
If you think it is rude to suggest a healthy meal, please let me know and I will think more about this. Thank you.

My mil does this. If I buy hot dogs she tells which kind are healthiest. I love it because she is a chef. But I also can't always afford to use almond butter or buy only kosher dogs :) I always thank her for the advice and do what I need to provide for our family too. I don't think it's rude but some people get offended or upset if they can't afford or don't know how to do such things (from scratch meals etc) I think it's important to look at who you are making suggestions too and why. Otherwise, I don't think it's rude.
