Toddler Food: What Miss G Eats {13}

Toddler Food

Okay, so on to week 13 of Toddler Food…  This week, a fellow blogger asked:

Do you mind me asking how much you spend on groceries per week?

Ugh…  I don’t even know if I want to say in case it’s a ridiculously high number in comparison to other families!  Although it’s less than what we regularly spent in Kuwait (KD 50 – 60, which equals out to about $200), it does seem like a lot when taking into account our back-to-making-Canadian-dollars budget.  The answer is – we normally spend about $150 per week.  That’s for our little family of three and includes basic toiletries, cleaners, and some organic items (mostly for Grae).  About $110 to $120 of it is spent at a regular grocery store and the other $30 to $40 is spent at the market on fresh produce. Is it just me, or does that seem like a lot?  We have started regularly taking big stock up trips down to the States, which, although not good for our Canadian economy, do save us a pile of money (and filling up our tank while down there makes the trip even more worth while!), but I find a small cart full of ‘just the essentials’ here in Vancouver easily adds up to $100 or more. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

Anyways, on to what the little miss has chowed down on recently…
