Confusing reporting on healthy eating

Journalists took the wrong message from a recent meta-analysis on food costs by researchers at Brown and Harvard, Joe Rojas-Burke writes. Many reports emphasized that a healthy diet costs only $1.48 per day more than an unhealthy one, but Rojas-Burke has the rest of the story: "An earlier study, not mentioned in any of the news coverage I saw, found that the cost of substituting healthier foods can cost up to 40 percent of an American low-income family’s food budget."
