Question: I'm writing an essay and I need quick description (in layman's terms) of why unhealthy food is cheaper than healthy food. I know it has something to do with it all being engineered with corn, but I just want to make sure I'm going in the right direction. Please help! It's all so confusing!

Governments can easily make GOOD food cheap and junk food expensive but they dont want to. Junk food is addictive. Causes illnesses,serious diseases such as cancer, makes you spotty, fat, messes up your teeth...etc. Governments cannot afford to have people eating fruit and vegetables and being healthy...hardly getting ill etc...who would pay for medicine in that case? who would pay to see the dentist? who would pay for acne cream? and liposuction? They'd rather have you die than lose money. Its strictly political.

It's up to you to fight these urges. You have to be dedicated to being healthy. It's not just about how you look... it's about your health and what that crap does to your insides. If you are avoiding taking chemical appetite suppressants... think of what is in fast food products! Go watch Supersize Me. The longer you avoid that stuff, the easier it gets to pass it up. You will find your cravings will come up less often, and subside more quickly.

A simple way I can think to put is unhealthy food is low quality. Think about hamburger for example, the 20%+ fat requires little seperation of fat from meat as 7% is much more expensive because it require a lot more work in seperation as well breeding leaner cattle. The same goes for a vast majority of different foods like normal eggs compared to omega 3 eggs where they feed the chickens flax seed (higher quality feed).

Junk food is easier to make and costs less to make, never mind the effort, when farming, you have to work every day, with junk food, you work a little then get a lot.

In junk food they use cheap ingredients and the parts of animals and vegetables that most people won't eat unless its turned into junk.

I don't think it is if you do your own cooking. Compare the cost bag of crisps and a do-nut with the cost of a sandwich made from a round of good bread and a slice of chicken. Compare a pot noodle with a chicken leg. Compare a banana with a chocolate bar.

Ciss Originally Answered: Too young for junk food?
When my kids were that age they were eating very healthy like for example soft rice mixed with smashed veggies and a small piece of fish. My kids also at that age loved fruits any type, bananas, apples, grapes, oranges, etc.. You sister in law needs to stop acting lazy and stop teaching the baby bad eating habits. She needs to put effort into cooking for her child. My son is 3 yrs old and my daughter is 5 yrs old and neither one h as ever had hotdogs ...yuck! That baby should love homemade food, but it's not his/her fault it's the mom's fault. Also my kids love grandmas cooking my mom has always enforced this rule with me to cook healthy food for the kids and get them used to homemade food.
