A new study according NY Daily News, on Dec 6, 2013 states that eating healthy cost about $1.50 more per person per day than eating the unhealthiest way possible. That doesn’t seem like a lot of money; however, for larger families it could be hundreds more per month.

The research followed 27 different publications into food choices and how much each menu cost. It was studied across the world eight advanced economies. The diets were scored by how healthy the family ate. For example: eating more fruits, vegetables, fish and nuts would put the family higher ranked than a family who consumed mostly processed foods.

The difference in price was relatively small compared to the risk of obesity and health conditions. These conditions would cost them way more than $1.50 per day more to treat. To eat healthy, according to the research would cost an additional $550 per year per person, making it a very small difference.

Are you going to work hard this year to eat better? Are you going to add more fresh, natural foods?
