This film is disturbing to me. You can’t buy food from McDonalds with food stamps. So the choice comparison about where you spend 1$ (Burger or broccoli) is inconsistent. Not all cheap food is unhealthy. Although I don’t consider a bag of chips food, that’s precisely what some people will “choose”, to spend their food money on having been educated or not (see it regularly-nurses)You can lead a horse to water...... but if you gave more foodstamp money there’s no guaranty they would eat any healthier. I think it comes down to what’s easiest for many. Cute gimmick.

Great book on this same subject: How to eat healthy on a food stamp budget. "Wildly Affordable Organic" by Linda Watson. Organic does not mean expensive. She shows you how to eat well everyday, averaging less than $2/meal. Borrow it for free at your library. ISBN# 9780738214689. Her website is cookforgood.com.
