SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – (November 21, 2011) – According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a realistic low-cost at-home food plan is about $110 per week for a family of two and $187 per week for a family of four who have kids older than 6 years old. Even with their low-cost figures, some families may wonder in this economy how to make that work, while still striving to eat healthy meals. The good news is there are many things families can do to help keep costs down, yet eat healthy at the same time.
"Many people make the assumption that it costs more to eat healthy," explains Jolly Backer, the chief executive officer of Fresh Healthy Vending (www.freshvending.com). "That is not necessarily true, especially for those families that really make an effort to focus on healthy eating within their budget."
Here are some tips for eating healthy on a budget:
"Whether eating at home or grabbing a snack on the run, there are lower cost, yet healthier options available," adds Backer. "It is just really a matter of paying attention and seeking out those healthier options. They are there, for those who want to take advantage of them."
