Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, fish, low-fat milk. These foods are basic to good health, yet most children and their families don’t eat enough of them.
One reason for this is because people often believe healthy foods aren’t affordable.

For example, a medium apple costs less than a standard-size candy bar.
