In January 2011 we challenged ourselves to eat for $5 per-person/per-day, inspired by a food budget we helped our son create for his 9th grade health class. You might be thinking that sounds pretty simple since a package of ramen is 25¢, but our plan was to try to eat healthy for $5 each. To read the introductory post, go here.

  1. The one great thing is that you will never go bored, with all the great choices;)

  2. Love all your ideas … but for a large family like mine $5 per person/per day would equal out to over $1000 per month in the food budget … that is too much! I am not exactly sure what we spend, I might try to keep track and see … interesting!

  3. I love this! Your ideas are kid-friendly enough for our toddler and preschooler! I appreciate your help!
