We've got the powder too my DS recats to it tho for some reason which is why I usually use the cubes! But yep the powder probably works out cheaper.
Another thought I had on the snack / recess / afternoon tea front: I usually bake from scractch but those Greens carrot, date cake etc mixes are actually really good - they ahve no artificial colours or flavours and Coles quite often have them on special for $2 and I keep them in the pantry as a back up. I grate in some extra carrot and zucchini and toss in some sultanas and they are yummy, cheap and freeze well- you can freeze individual slices and thraw them out for recess etc and one cake would last the week. The pack includes icing as an option too.

On the biscuit note I just made anzac bisucits and it occurred to me they are prob quite cheap to make:
1cup flour (the cheap no-name white packet thta's about 89c)
125g no-name butter
1cup no-name rolled oats (about $1.20 a packet)
3/4cup brown sugar
1cup coconut (optional but it's pretty cheap)
2tbls golden syrup
The good thing about them is they don't take much of each packet so if you have the above in the pantry or even if you buy it the packets will make you several batches.
Melt butter, golden syrup, water on the stove than chuck in the bicarb. Sift together all dry ingredients than mix in the wet mixture. Roll into balls then cook at about 160deg til golden.
I make them all the time, they are easy and they last in a sealed container for ages!

No flour they come out very soft but harden up after a few minutes of cooling. I made a batch this morning and DH and DD cleared them up in around 20 minutes!
We actually feed our family for around $100 a week, most weeks a little less. That includes meat, fruit and vege, milk and bread, cereal, snacks, and a few treats.
