COMMENTARY: Healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive

Sunday 23:41 GMT

While this may be so, it does not, in itself, prove that healthy diets are necessarily more expensive or cost-prohibitive.

If your idea of eating healthy is salads or wraps, you’re missing out on these meals. Research shows that in developed countries, more affluent and educated people tend to consume higher-quality diets — including more fruits and vegetables, fish and whole grains. Conversely, socioeconomically disadvantaged people report diets that are nutrient-poor and energy-dense, replete with foods like pasta, potatoes, table sugar, fried foods and processed meats.
