I went to the grocery store to purchase a few items to weather the BLIZZARD OF 2010 and came out having spent almost $20 on four apples and three oranges, bag of baby carrots, milk and some cereal. How are we to feed our children healthy but delicious foods when things are so expensive at the grocery stores? It would be cheaper to purchase processed, frozen foods including vegetables for the children and the family if i knew it were healthy. I understand the production, packaging, and the delivery of foods are expensive and a very tedious process however our Society are constantly talking about making sure our children are eating a large serving of fresh fruits and vegetables. However when a few items of fresh produce are expensive and children are to eat these items daily, how does one reconcile the grocery bills weekly? I am not encouraging not spending the money on fresh fruits and vegetables, i am voicing my concerns about the PRICING of so-called HEALTHY FOODS for families. If we would like our children to be well fed and healthy, then we need to make sure the PRODUCERS and the GROCERY STORE managers are pricing these types of foods so that ALL families can afford to feed their children the right amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables. Let us not even talk about ORGANIC fruits and vegetables, that would cost me my leg and arm and $20.00!
