I would say $300 for 2 adults and 3 children aged 7, 5, 3 but I don't really keep count.
I buy good quality meat. I don't always buy in season because I buy what my kids will eat.

It's around $100 -$150 for 1 adult, and 2 kids (7 & 5). I meal plan and there is no a single bit of wastage. It's been years since I've thrown out any fruit or veg.... In summer it's even better because we get given bags and bags of free mangoes. That's out fruit for school lunches and snacks then. Helps ease the good bill. 4 nights a fortnight it's just me so that helps a bit too. I've budgeted to $150 but often it's only $80 for the week. I make all retreats from scratch and portion meat into freezer bags.

Roughly $200 a fortnight, including top ups, for 2 adults and 2 children.
Main shop at Aldi, plus butcher and green grocer, then Coles for top ups.

I need to sit down and write an actual weekly shop up, and price it all out. We allow $200 a week for 2 adults and two spoiled cats, but I think we should be able to eat well for less than that.
If I could stretch our weekly food budget to $200 including a meal out for the 2 of us at our local pub I'd be stoked. Time to sit down and do some proper budgeting methinks

2 adults and 4 kids - $200 weekly and some small top ups during the week. We save money by doing our fruit and veg at the markets every fortnight.
