i have no idea. we do 95% of our grocery shopping at sprouts, which is a farmers market type grocery store, and i spend less than $40/week for breakfast, dinner and snack foods.
Well, my portions are smaller, and I don't buy treats (...as much) anymore, so that made a big dent. We buy mostly organic, and it's still not awful. I cook everything from scratch, which I think saves us a lot.

Thank you for responding. I have changed my eating habits tremendously and I don't really see it being a problem in price as many people say. It makes me think "Well.. am I really buying healthy food"? :[
lean meats are more expensive but i think a lot of the issue is in a lot of families the whole family doesn't want to diet so all the "healthy" food is extra money. also if they want to get the snack stuff like the fiber one's or special k things they are really expensive.

I spend a fortune on healthy food here.
A whole chicken is running about $5 per lb right now, chicken breasts are between $5-$6 per lb. Ground turkey is normally almost $4 per lb.
Tomatoes are $4 per pound, apples were $7 for 1.5 lbs, salad mix is $3 each, berries were $4 per pkg ( 1/2 pint)...Organics are twice as much around here, so there are times I don't get Organic. The cheapest thing I got at the store on Sunday was an English Cucumber and it was $2. Nice... I'm averaging $200 per week eating healthy. I rarely buy processed items..I keep small bags of chips, fruit snacks, and treats for dd's lunch box, but other than that- not much. Heck, bread that does not have HFCS is $4 per loaf where I live. We've eaten cleanly for several years now and our grocery bill increased when we started this lifestyle..
