Which is down to the same reason, if you have little money, you cannot afford a healthy diet easily. Because good fresh food is behind the same monetary hurdle and cheep unhealthy processed food is much more affordable.

You can eat healthy on a budget. I know it’s not possible everywhere but I think the problem has more to do with education and understanding nutrition. So many people, especially if they only have a high school diploma or less, aren’t taught a single thing about nutrition. On top of that, people in the US were given the opposite of nutrition education with that old food pyramid that recommended 5-6 servings of “whole grains” which is often interpreted as “bread, cereal, baked goods, etc”. What a mess, it’s no wonder we have this health crisis.
