    Fruit is a big one as all 3 of us eat 2-3 pieces a day - I go to my fruit shop and organic shop every Monday and Thursday and keep it in the crisper - today I bought :
    1 punnet x strawberries
    1 x blueberries
    1 x raspberries
    Big bunch Green grapes
    8 x Peaches
    5 x Green apples
    5 x kiwi fruit
    1 pomegranate
    Bunch bananas ( about 6)

    Then I'll go again Thursday and probably get the same again

    Kiddo only eats green apples so i buy enough for school. I have been eating red apples lately so been buying them every few days as i find eating an apple about 4am keeps the hunger pains away as i dont eat when i get home from work in the mornings.

    I also buy a lot for my guinea pigs. They get watermelon, grapes, blueberries and whatever else tickles my fancy at the time as well as their veges.

    Default Fruit

    We buy fruit twice a week and we normally grab

    1 punnet of strawberries
    1 punnet of blueberries
    6 bananas
    4 apples

    Then we would grab an orange, pear, plum, kiwis or nectarines.

    Summer time we would buy about 4-6 mangoes a week.

    This is for two adults & a one year old.

    We go through minimum 70 pieces of fruit a week! 5 of us, eating at least 2 pieces a day. 6kg of bananas from the markets lasts 4 days lol we always have 3-4 different fruit ready to eat for variety.

    Hardly any here

    6-7 bananas for DS to take to school each day, it's the only fruit he will eat!

    I don't like fruit and DH is allergic to most of it.

    I did the fruit and veg shop today.

    Half a watermelon
    6 oranges
    5 kiwi
    6 bananas
    1kg plums
    1kg apricots
    10 mangoes
    1 punnet strawberries
    2 punnet blueberries
    1 red papaya
    1 punnet raspberries

    This is for 4 people. It will be dwindling by the weekend. Sometimes I get through to the following Monday, sometimes not.

    Everything goes in the fridge except the bananas and oranges.

    Not that much.

    10 apples
    Quarter of watermelon
    5 mandarins
    10 peaches.
    A few bananas
    I will buy the occasional punnet of blueberries or raspberries because DS likes them.
    go through a box of frozen raspberries every few weeks for cooking too.
    I also have HEAPS of frozen banana in the freezer I use for to make ice cream.

    But that's about it. Kids are the only ones that eat it but they will have a a few pieces of fruit each a day.
