    To repeat myself, $1 of chips versus $1 of apples. If you can afford one, you can afford the other.

    A box of macaroni and cheese is about $1.00 and you can feed three kids lunch on it. Do you have any examples of foods that are more nutritious that you can feed three kids on for the amount of money?

    I don't necessarily think you are wrong but I do think it takes a great deal of creativity, resourcefulness and time at the very least.

    I would love some examples.

    SO suddenly, education isn't the only thing required to make food affordable.

    If you're a vegan all that is already provided by your diet.
