Eating Healthy with a Lower Price Tag


A recent study on public perceptions about obesity shows that nearly half of all Americans believe that healthy food is just too pricey.

But, Quincy Hy-Vee manager Melissa Bradfield says that it doesn't have to be. Keep an eye out for coupons and deals in printed ads and newspapers. She says that a couple of misunderstandings make healthy food a little scary to shoppers.

"They think it's higher priced, which it's not necessarily, and not knowing what is healthy and what's not healthy," said Bradfield.

If you need help knowing the difference, Hy-Vee has a dietician on staff. And, Bradfield says produce is always a good place to start.

Money Saving Queen Sarah Roe also has some tips for eating healthy on a budget.
