I do think the organic foods are very expensive - the fruit and veg normally is fine and the competition now between supermarkets as helped to cut costs down - however, i think the health foods are expensive and the s.markets to increase their price here - it would help if it were less.

We certainly don't stop eating healthily because it's costly, we just vary our meals; pasta with salads, beans with rice, less and less meats, more vegetables and fruits in variety as well. Making our own, instead of packaged. Making portions less as well.

"Back in the day" grandma also didn't typically work. Society has changed so our eating habits have changed.

I live in Govanhill - an area in Glasgow fortunately full of fruit shops but equally full of Asian fast food and sweet shops! On top of the availability of fatty food like kebabs and pizzas, our new Roma population from various eastern European countries have brought their own food nightmares - cooking the cheapest of meat, using the takeaways a lot (especially the young people) and lack of exercise (especially the girls). On top of that, there's the smoking....it's like Glasgow is back in...

We need more health education for our new communities, and better shopping options and cheaper food!

Our fresh veggies are hard to find in our two grocery stores and the new coconut milk/almond mild is hard to find.. the just keep a few carton on the shelf and they don' have a lot of the product I need... I usually go to Publix in lebanon, tn. to find the products I need.. It's a shame we don't have a store in smithville, tn. that carries these and if you read the news it says wal-mark carries the lowest grades of our fruits and veggies.. and they don't keep shelves stocked very well..

I don't like the bagged lettuce, etc because it has somekind of protector in the bag and it is usually has a slime on it.l. same way at food lion..I do wish we could get a Publix here or a Harris Teeter...

Kashi, who funds this project, is owned by Kelloggs, and Kashi uses genetically modified foods, and foods that aren't organic. I wouldn't trust the Kellogg Corporation to teach anyone to eat healthily. They are probably encouraging poor people to eat their sugar and GMO filled, dairy drenched poison, all for the purpose of lining their own pockets. If you care about poor people and/or nutrition, DO NOT TAKE THIS POLL!

the biggest problem with finding healthy foods is GMOs. PERIOD. if they didn't allow GMOS without labeling it would be so much easier to shop with out having to put everything corn, canola, and soy derived back unless its organic or specifically GMO free. GMO's not being labeled is just annoying and totally BS since this is the U.S., the only developed nation that hasn't banned or required labeling. you can eat all the healthy foods you want, but when everything is Roundup Ready (yes roundup...

GMO's not being labeled is just annoying and totally BS since this is the U.S., the only developed nation that hasn't banned or required labeling. you can eat all the healthy foods you want, but when everything is Roundup Ready (yes roundup like the weed, grass, and plant killer) and mass produced it's almost impossible to be a vegan or vegetarian without consuming alot of GMO's unless you buy organic which relays the cost. For meat eaters, they feed GMOs to the livestock, you are what you eat =/.

I just started a full time job back in Corp. America after 10 years as a yoga teacher. What an eye opener! I never realized how much people don't know about nutrition. Even though the company I work for is small, 6 employees, only myself and the owner have any clue about healthy eating. I watch one woman drink a super sized coke every morning. I see people coming back with bagfuls of fast food with no nutritional value! Have you seen "Fat , Sick and Nearly Dead"? So I am doing my best to...

I just started a full time job back in Corp. America after 10 years as a yoga teacher. What an eye opener! I never realized how much people don't know about nutrition. Even though the company I work for is small, 6 employees, only myself and the owner have any clue about healthy eating. I watch one woman drink a super sized coke every morning. I see people coming back with bagfuls of fast food with no nutritional value! Have you seen "Fat , Sick and Nearly Dead"? So I am doing my best to teach by example. So far I have talked to them about what exactly is in a soda, the difference between fast food and something cooked from scratch, and how to eat smaller meals to keep metabolism, and energy, up throughout the day. Of course yoga comes up constantly. But most of them don't exercise at all. I checked cost as the main obstacle to eating healthy. But like someone else mentioned, I eat only non-gmo and organic. Luckily there are two locally owned small organic supermarkets close by, just outside of Detroit. We also have farmers markets year round and a couple of Wholefoods and Trader Joes, as well. Guess I'm lucky to have access to whatever I can afford.
