Experts fear the recession will worsen Americans’ already bulging waistlines, as healthy food often costs more than high-calorie fare. University of Washington researchers are analyzing which give the most nutrition for the price per portion. Some foods on the list:

• Lower-fat milk; low-fat yogurt; cheddar, American or mozzarella cheese

• Lean ground beef; chicken (not deep-fried); canned fish

• Whole eggs

• Beans, dry or canned

• Peanut butter; sunflower seeds; almonds

• Bread, enriched or made with whole wheat; tortillas, corn or wheat; rice

• Bananas; apples; frozen orange juice concentrate; 100 percent fruit juice or fruit-vegetable blends

• Potatoes, with or without skins; iceberg lettuce; canned, not creamed, corn; canned tomatoes
