We must eat less than most of us have been. Smaller portion sizes....then the better quality foods do not become more expensive. We have the supersize mentality thrown at us at every turn and we try to eat to keep up with the portion sizes because we don't like to waste....eating from home is always better in controlling portion sizes and calorie intake

It costs more to eat healthy because the only real healthy foods are organic, and they cost quite alot more.

Considering what additives are in food now days you might want to cook from scratch.If you use just a small portion of meat or fish and larger portions of vegetables, rice, potatoes then it is not any more expensive than fast food and certainly a lot healthier.

A lot is to do with how kids are raised, we need to learn to tolerate sour and bitter tastes and to remain sensitive to sweet and salty tastes as we grow. If done right, you grow up to find the excess sugar in soft drink or too high levels of added salt repulsive. A donut shouldn't taste better than a well prepared salad. In fact it is the addiction to the fat-sugar chemical effect in the brain that makes us imagine we prefer those tastes to more complex flavourful fresh foods.

The expense is mainly in the better quality fruit and veg, organically grown and freshly harvested, and nice high antioxidant things like berries are so dear! Nutrients vary in types of farming practise, and the cheap stuff is so nutrient poor it's almost not healthy at all!

When I think of healthy food I think organic. Organic foods are extremely expensive.

Kudos to Kashi for calling attention to this. But I have to wonder why they won't back better food labeling laws? It makes me wonder how much of how they present themselves is real and how much is just good PR.

Cook using fresh produce and organic if possible. Buy from local greengrocers who support local farmers, that way you support the local community and chances are the vegetables have not been stored for months and kept fresh looking with continual use of pesticides. Know what goes into the products that you consume...read all the labels and reduce the processed foods which are full of toxic chemicals or are laden with sugar. It is a lot easier than one may think and great fun to cook healthy meals. And it doesn't have to be expensive.

Kashi supposedly used GM corn in their products. So, how am I supposed to take them seriously?
