Food Stamps - Complaining over good food?

This is something I don't understand that a lot of mothers on here complain about.

People constantly complain about those who are on food stamps; including when those on FS make GOOD food choices (like purchasing Greek yogurt over the cheap brand - heck even the cheap Greek yogurt is better).

There are some foods that are worth getting at the higher price, because you receive a better health benefit in return.

You know, like the fact that Greek Yogurt is much better because there is less sugar in the product, which also helps with vaginal health and digestion.

It makes me wonder, do you know anything about food or what you're talking about?

I'm not trying to be mean, it's just an observation. If you eat crap food, your finances aren't the reason why -- it's because you don't know how to cook.

It seems that way, but it also makes me wonder how many people actually cook these days. :/

 Between my husband, myself, and my 11 year old we eat home cooked meals for every meal. We rarely do prepackaged foods.

Which is a reality, but has nothing to do with people who do actually make good choices.

I think some of the problem is there are parents who both work and make just a little too much so they don't qualify for any type of assistance. They are struggling to feed their family and provide other basic needs. Some even skip meals so their kids will have enough to eat. Then they hear of people who get just insane an amount of fs and brag about all the food they are able to buy.

I don't think it's what people are buying, it comes down to what they are buying it with.

People like to find a reason to bitch. Hell, people bitch about people needing FS. Have you seen the arguments? Don't have children you can't afford. Should have had a back up plan in place (with HUGE savings of THOUSANDS of dollars). Give your kid up (that's my favorite for laughs because it's THAT fucking absurd.) Sell everything you don't NEED, including your child's items that they don't NEED (another absurd one; I'll sell my shit but not my child's; I am not subjecting my child to the understanding of adult problems).

not sure what you are really trying to say. but it's been my observation that the people who are taking advantage of the assistance and have an entitlement mentality do not purchase healthy foods. it has nothing to do with whether or not they can cook
