How to feed your family on a budget

For this meal prep, Kaitie made 50 meals, showing that you can eat healthy on a BUDGET. Kaitie says “I could easily stretch this over 2 weeks with topping up on milk, bread, fruit and salad.” Some ways that Kaitie stretches her budget is by using grated carrot in all the mince dishes and bulking out meat dishes with tinned lentils.

She also shops smart by choosing the most cost effective brands. “I chose the cheapest brands or whatever is on sale,” Kaitie says. “I also tend to cook a lot with similar ingredients and have some pantry staples such as cinnamon, wholemeal flour and some herbs.”

Kaitie also included ingredients for snacks, breakfasts and lunches, like Healthy Chocolate Weetabix Slice, 5 Ingredient Snickers Mousse, natural yogurt and berries, tuna & salad wraps, ham sandwiches, boiled eggs and extra fruit for lunchboxes.
