The 10 Cheapest Fruits To Add To Your Grocery List

According to new research, families who have healthier diets end up spending $2,000 more every year than those who don’t opt for nutritious meals. Specifically, diets that mainly consist of fruits, vegetables, fish, and nuts reportedly raise food costs by about $550 a year for only one person.

These prices and food costs unfortunately keep a lot of families from staying healthy. "We have to make sure everybody has the possibility of buying a healthy diet [that] is reasonably priced and we haven't done that now,” said Valerie Tarasuk, a professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto.

One way to combat the costs is to know your inexpensive-but-healthy food items. Click on to see 10 of the cheapest fruits you can add to your grocery list.
