This is definitely true but I would say that it would need to be looked at on a case by case basis.Eating healthy can be expensive as well, whereas 3 for 1 pizzas for £3 is common
Its cheaper to eat shit foods, which is bonkers when you really think about it
What I mean by that is someone might buy the 3 for 3 pizzas but also spend a load of money on cigarettes and booze on top of that so it's tricky to get a good grasp on where people are spending their money.
If someone is prioritising other things above food and then has little left over to spend on food then it's not just the case that healthy foods cost more but that the person is spending more money needlessly elsewhere.
Obviously for people who are legitimately poor this is a far more dire and complicated scenario. For the people posting all day on Twitter and Instagram about thin privilege etc I am not sure it's an issue with healthy food costing too much.
