  3. UK researchers find the gap between healthy and affordable food has increased over the last ten years

Researchers at the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR), UK, which is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, the University of East Anglia and Medical Research Council Units in Cambridge, have found that over the last ten years the price gap between healthy and unhealthy foods has increased by 28.6%. There is a risk that this could lead to more consumers struggling to afford healthy food. The findings, which were published in the journal PLOS ONE, were reported in an article by Food Navigator. This demonstrates the need to produce and sell food which is both healthy and affordable.
