Is it true that healthy food is more expensive that junk food?

I love healthy food but spouse loves junk food. How do we meet in the middle? I try to encourage him (sometimes nagging). How do I find a good medium?

Nagging: Nagging is the worst thing to do when one wants to inspire a spouse. You have to think of him as an addict. It is not your right or place to change him.
