    is the "affordable" issue. For ex.-peaches canned in sugary syrup are cheaper per # than fresh. Organic chicken (without those hormones that may be involved in obesity and other problems) is more expensive. Organic milk is more expensive.

      made at home is till way better than Kentucky Fried Chicken.

      Let's not lose sight of the problem here.

      Fresh meats and produce are still much more healthy than fast foods.

      •  They Will Not Give You an Address to Check... (3+ / 0-)

        because the people that are complaining about a food desert will not walk a mile for healthy food.  They still make shopping baskets on wheels that you can pull behind you.  But people don't wan't to walk anymore.

        Many of the people here on DKos get plenty of exercise riding bikes to work, walking to the store, etc.  But they don't expect others to do the same.

          the excuses people will make and the length they will go to blame the government for something as simple as buying healthy food for your children.

          almost comical.. too bad it is more tragic than anything.
