Well, a new study (from Institute of Economic Affairs) says healthy food is mostly cheaper than junk food, making it “simply wrong” that cost is driving poor nutrition and obesity. The cheapest ready meals — pizzas, burgers and sugary breakfast cereals — cost more per ounce than typical fruits and vegetables. The study compared the prices of 78 common food and drink products, finding that healthier options are mostly cheaper than less healthy alternatives when measured by edible weight rather than “flawed” cost-per-calorie methodology.
