In an effort to stretch dollars, and obviously for convenience reasons, we don't eat the healthiest. We were eating dinner last night at the table. My daughter was playing with her noodles as she slowly ate. Truth of the matter, we were eating Ramen noodles. I am not better than eating cheap foods. Some people refuse to touch the stuff. I am perfectly fine with it.
It got me thinking last night though. I need to focus on feeding my kids better food. The problem is: MONEY. Is it just me, or is all healthy food expensive? It just seems that prices just keep increasing on everything. I need to focus more on feeding my kids healthy and filling foods, while keeping our food budget down. What a toss up this is. Yes, it is very important to feed them healthier foods. But when it is just you providing for the family, it sure is hard spending more on food. How do you stretch a dollar and feed your family heatlhy meals? How much do you spend on average per month on groceries? What do you tend to feed your family?
