Healthy Food is Expensive

“My husband and I are overweight due to unhealthy food. His cholesterol’s high, but it’s hard to buy healthy food. Unhealthy food is less expensive but I feel like in the long run it will cause more medical problems, which in turn will cause expensive bills from health providers. We make too much to get free lunch for our children. Sometimes it can be a struggle to make sure the older children are eating healthy. I’m thankful to Baltimore City Schools for providing free breakfast to our children.”
