Read this good news report from CSPI.

They found that average price per serving of healthy fruits and vegetables was less than unhealthy options for both snacks and side dishes.

The average price per serving of the fruit or vegetable snacks was $0.34, while that of the unhealthy snacks was $0.67.

The average price per serving of vegetable side dishes was $0.27, compared to $0.31 for the less healthful side dishes.

Differences in calories per serving between the fruits and vegetables versus the less healthful options often were large, with fruits and vegetables having 15 to 260 fewer calories than the unhealthy snacks and 35 to 150 fewer calories than the unhealthy side dishes.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
