Food that affects inflation

BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) – Inflation and food are linked. When costs increase, people often choose cheaper foods at the grocery store. In many grocery stores, cheaper foods have lower nutritional value.

However, properly filling your cart and feeding your family is a priority for North Dakota nutritionists.

“When people think of the most diet-friendly foods, it’s fresh vegetables, proteins, meats and things like that, but there are ways to get the right nutrition without going to the expensive sections of the grocery store.” said Sam Schilling, a registered dietitian at Sanford in Bismarck.

Dietitians say some ways you can combat inflation at the grocery store include planning ahead, simplifying your diet, and choosing frozen rather than fresh foods.

Good news… eggs are getting cheaper. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last month that the price of eggs decreased by almost seven percent compared to January.
