Healthy Eating on a Budget

  1. Don’t shop hungry. If you shop when you are hungry, you are more likely to buy more than you need and possibly buy less healthy items that appeal to you at that moment.

  2. Try to go grocery shopping without children. Stores put foods that many children like such as candy and sugary cereal where they can see and reach them. These foods are often advertised with characters that appeal to children. If you must bring children, grocery shopping can be a great way to teach them about food and nutrition (and colors, math, reading!)

  3. Check out heart healthy recipes from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help you plan your meals and shopping list at, or see my previous post on healthy recipies ( June 12, 2009).
