Infographic: Healthy food costs less than junk food


Men’s Health Magazine has come out with a wonderful infographic dispelling the myth that eating healthy food has to bust your grocery budget. A new report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has found that snacks from the perimeter of the grocery store (i.e., fruits and veggies) cost an average of $0.34 per half-cup serving, while junky processed food costs $0.67 per half-cup serving. The former has a mean of approximately 50 calories and the latter 194 calories. Eating well does not have to cost more!
