8. That thing about low income
is so especially unfortunate. I went through a time years ago as a single parent where I barely made enough to cover rent and we lived on simple whole foods rather than processed. A bag of oatmeal for porridge is way cheaper and healthier than boxed cereals for breakfast, staples such as rice and beans, fresh fruits and veggies that are on sale and my daughter never went malnourished. I feel so badly for the kids who grow up on this modern diet of boxed food like substances and soda pops, they just don't have a chance to reach their potential.
