Getting more nutrients for your money

Full-frame picture of colorful fruits and vegetablesDid you know that scientists have developed a score to tell which foods give you the most nutrients for your money?  It’s called the Affordable Nutrition Index . So what foods came out on top?  Highest scores went to carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli, oranges, and bananas.   Other foods with high scores were peas, string beans, squash, lettuce, grapes, nectarines, apples, and berries like strawberries.  Vegetable soups, especially the low – sodium ones, are also good values. So next time you think you’re paying a lot for fresh produce, just think about what you’re getting! And if these foods keep you healthy, you’re saving even more!
