Great point about the amount families spend on food in the US and why! Thanks for sharing.
Mari, thanks for the comments and the encouragement to others that they can eat healthy. So true: you are what you eat!
I don't know enough about veganism to speak intelligently on the subject, but thank you bringing it up. Maybe someone with more knowledge on the subject can chime in. I do agree, however, that the cheapest calories aren't usually the most nutritious. Of course, there are exceptions -- such as popcorn, where organic kernels are cheaper than conventional microwave popcorn.
School lunches are abysmal! We have a large population of kids in our elementary school receiving free and reduced price breakfast and lunch. It's disturbing to me to think that what might be their best meals of the day are of such poor quality. I've just gotten involved in this issue in my school district and the national school lunch movement seems to be swelling. I, too, hope change comes soon.
