Everyone is concerned with the rise of obesity in today's youth....but when I go shopping and try to buy healthy foods for my daughters, it seems like it costs sometimes twice as much as junk food. I still buy them fruit, veggies, milk, cheese, yogurt, etc., but when I look at healthy foods for myself, I just can't afford it! I would love to buy some of the 100 calorie pack snacks, low-fat foods, and I would LOVE to be able to buy WW food products. But all these things seem to be so much more expensive....so if everyone is concerned with the rise in obesity, why is no one trying to lower the cost of healthy foods?

I don't agree that healthy food is more expensive. One reason is the amount of nutrients in a good meal verses a not so good meal. Good deal IMO. My second reason is having a healthy diets is better for your health. Once diabetes, obesity, and other diseases start to effect you, the medical cost will hit your pocket hard. People should rely on frozen and/ or prepared foods. Take your own responsibly and prepare your own meals. I remember a few years back a bunch of people wanted to sue fast food restaurants like McDonald's because they became obese. I could have died laughing.
