Who can afford a new gym membership and shopping at fancy organic grocery stores in these times? The good news is that you don’t have to do any of these things to stay healthy and have fun with your family. Your neighborhood is full of free and low-cost activities for kids and families. And your local grocery store or ethnic food store has lots of options for inexpensive, quick, and healthy meals. You can bring your family together in the kitchen, in the park, or at the community center – and have fun along the way!
