…and try to tell me that this 11-year-old boy does not have more insight about the food system in our country than a majority of adult Americans.

“Some people say that organic or local food is more expensive, but is it really?…It seems to me that we can either pay the farmer or we can pay the hospital.”

Not only is Birke Baehr smart, but he is a charming, confident,animated, and convincing public-speaker as well. The young man gives us a concise look at the abysmal state of our food system in the United States. He always tells us how to make better choices.

    Unfortunately, here in Alaska it is usually a lot more expensive to even get fresh produce, much more for organic and local. So we buy either frozen or regular. That’s still better than most canned or processed foods.

      Frankie,
      I can only imagine that it is much more expensive in Alaska, and understandably so. I grew up on canned goods and lots of processed foods. However, I am learning that we can compromise to the best of our abilities sooner than later to avoid the dreaded hospital bills later in life. If you want to e-mail me at healthcoachmeg@gmail.com, I may have some economical choices for you!
