Now I understand how difficult it is without the right food products

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Going through this time in my life is hard. I miss the things I could afford at the time I was married, I dont understand how any single mother can survive on child support and I see how the bad choices are so cheap its a vicious cycle. In my area the obesity rate is sky high and the income levels are at the lowest. Of course once I go back into divorce trial I will bring that up but it has been so challenging to buy produce and things that are actually healthy,, instead of overprcocessed cheaper foods, but I can live on protein powder and make sure my daughter gets feed the things she needs. I see how its easier and how difficult it is for the lower incomes,, sad but true. I think once I get done with my personal life I can than make it my mission to help women get healthy food for their families and help raise awareness that the family court systems only benenfits lawyers and judges and not families.

    Never forget this experience. It's so easy for those who are not struggling financially to belittle overweight people, especially at the lowest income levels, but you see how difficult is it to get really meaningful nutrition on an extremely low budget. It breaks my heart when politicians threaten programs like WIC, Headstart, and free/reduced breakfast and lunch programs - these are vital lifelines for those most at risk.
