Eating healthy foods definitely has cost us more. I would say my grocery budget has gone up maybe $20-30 just in a week, so $80-$120 a month. Up for SURE. Not only have I added more veggies and fruits, which cost more... but I really watch what products I get. I still eat chips in moderation, but I get chips without added crap and just 3 ingredients. These cost $3.99 vs the $1.50 for the chips I used to get. Natural ketchup is $1 more. (without HFCS).. stuff like that has added up.

Thankfully, it's not an issue though. We just budget for the added cost, and have decided it's worth it. We pay less in doctor bills when we do this

We also have just one child, so things in general cost us less.
