And per 2,000 calories, which is the recommended average daily intake for adults.
The results showed that on average, the healthiest diets which are rich in fruits, vegetables, fish and nuts -- cost about $1.50 more per day than the least healthy diets which include more processed foods, meats and refined grains. Over a year, that would add up to about $550 per person, which according to the lead researcher could be a real burden for some families. On the other hand, he says the price difference is small compared to the costs of diet-related chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
