Chowdown With Chip – It Costs More To Eat Healthy

A daily diet of healthy, nutritious low-calorie fare can cost a whopping 10 times more than feasting on calorie rich junk food, says a recent study.

Eating 2000 calories a day costs only $3.52 if taken from a menu of junk food like snacks, baked goods, pastries and candy, say researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle. But consuming the same number of calories cost $36.32 a day if the meals were cooked up with wholesome low calorie foods, including fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, the prices of healthy foods were much more likely to be boosted by inflation than tasty treats that feature easy to come by ingredients like salt, sugar and grease. During the two year study, the cost of junk foods increased a measly 1.8 percent while prices for nourishing, low calorie foods skyrocketed by 19.5 percent.
