The Cost of Eating Healthy
Is it possible to eat a nutritious, healthy diet on a budget? Is healthy food too expensive, or too cheap? These are the big questions on this week's episode of Eating Matters with host Kim Kessler and co-host Jenna Liut. With these concerns creating fault lines among food advocates, some of which have said that Americans need to spend more of their income on food, it raises concerns about those who can’t currently afford enough good food to eat. On the line, Kim and Jenna welcome two experts, Parke Wilde (Associate Professor, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University) and Marlene Schwartz (Director, Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, University of Connecticut), for a thorough discussion surrounding these questions.
