e can offer many excuses or create psychological barriers as to the reason it may be difficult to eat healthily such as: I don’t have time, I have children and I will buy what they like, I buy what is convenient for me to cook, or I am overwhelmed with a lot of information that I end up buying what I know is unhealthy!
