I think I spend about $200 for DF, myself and a 2.5 year old. I would love to get it down but I am a food snob.

I spend $150 a fortnight for myself and 2 growing boys (also a dog ,a cat and a snake) - that includes top ups of fresh fruit and bread.
How do I do it? I separate all our meat into portions - eg 2.2kg of mince will give us 8-9 meals. We don't eat potato, but eat pumpkin and sweet potato instead. 1 chicken breast will feed all three of us plus have leftovers if used in pasta or casseroles.
I shop at aldi mainly and nothing goes to waste.

For dp and I it's anywhere from $80-$150 a week depending on what money we have that week. The $150 shops last us a while .

We spend between $150 - $200 a week for 2 adults, cat, dog and two kids that come every second weekend.
It would be less if we got fruit and vegies at a market but we don't have a good one close buy and we occasionally by meat in bulk but it is out of our way so we don't get there often. DH spoils the kids when they are with us so we spend a bit on treats for them.
We budget $200 a week for everything so as long as it is under we don't worry too much. Will be interesting when bubs comes and we have to include nappies etc.

Average about $180-200. For 2 adults 2 children. I could get it down but dh likes meat for every meal and we have trouble keeping weight on ds (who has ADHD) so I buy extras that he likes.

We spend $275 a week for 2 adults and 2 kids that eat like adults. We almost never buy takeaway and we do a reasonable amount of entertaining which is included in that.
We mostly eat organic meat and raw milk etc which does push the price up a lot. We are also gluten free, which again adds expense.
I would love to bring it down a bit, but if I spend less, it generally means we don't eat as healthily.
It works out to $10/person/day.

Mines between about $250 and $300.
This is for 2 adults and 3 kids under 7.
We aim for 2 red meat, 1 chicken, 1 pork, 1 seafood and 1 vegetarian every week. We have 1 takeaway every week and if I feel too slack to cook then whatever is in the house.
