Food is expensive, but you can find tips to help you eat well on a tight budget. For example:
- Prepare stews and casseroles to help stretch expensive food items and provide meals for multiple days.
- Choose fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season. Healthy foods that tend to be reasonably priced and available year-round include apples, bananas, potatoes, carrots, and greens.
- Buy groceries when you are not hungry or rushed.
- Avoid convenience foods, such as frozen dinners, pre-cut vegetables, and instant oatmeal—you pay more for convenience.
If you are struggling to put food on the table, consider programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and school meal programs for children.
