I'm doing a project on this and would really love it if you would tell me!

Here's the survey link.

It will truly honestly take less than 1 minute smile

Do you mean when eating out or for family meals at home?

If family meals at home, it's kind of hard to work out - they just have some of what the adults are eating.

I have a 10mo but as he eats the same as we do, I'm not sure I'd realistically be able to work out how much his meals actually cost.

Family meals at home are very difficult to work out, the dc eat what we eat. So if i give you what they've eaten today you can calculate cost (dc1 age 6) and dc 2 age 2

Breakfast - bowl of porridge each (maybe 15p per pack of oats so simple plus a splash of milk)

Lunch- fresh pasta and tomato sauce ( total cost £3 but me and dh ate it too) dc1 decided she didn't want it so had a cheese sandwich instead (am not sure of the cost of a slice of hovis, some butter and a handful of grated cheddar)

Snack apple and grapes and some breadsticks

Snack - scoop of icecream and cone

Dinner meatballs (I think £4 for 20) dc1 ate about 6, dc 2 had 5, mashed potato, broccoli and carrot. Jelly for pudding (I think a pack of jelly is 56p but there is still some jelly left)
