Well Duh! Of course it is easier to eat better if you have more money. Junk food is much cheaper than fruits and vegetables and healthier food. Also like the article stated sports are expensive.

Ho hum…another article to attack people with money.
It costs the same no matter how much or how little money you have to run around the park for exercise.

When food stamps first came out, one could not buy prepared junk food, pop, pizza, etc.with food stamps. Perhaps we should go back to these standards. Recipients of food stamps could stretch their food dollars more if they would simply prepare more healthy foods for their families. A crock pot of soup or stew does not cost a lot and can be prepared in a few mins. before going to work - that is if they do work. There are many folks who might not qualify for food stamps, but both parents or the one parent who is raising the kids are working as well and they, too have only 24 hours a day.
