As a mother and wife I feel that this proposal is unrealistic for middle/lower class working families. We can not afford to buy a mass amount of fruit and vegetables!! They are too expensive. Maybe the country would be healthier if we had ready access to ORGANIC and CHEAP fruit and vegetables?! I do not like purchasing food covered in pesticides and other chemicals for my family but I have too as we can not afford to buy completely organic and healthy fruit and vegetables. We need access to these things to make our family healthier!

The government is making too much money on unhealthy and chemical foods and does not care about the people within the country and their health!

We need change! Not quideline on how to change our eating habits!
