Frozen veggies! I mix frozen veggies into just about everything. Or green peppers, which are pretty cheap where I'm at, are great in scrambled eggs. So are mushrooms. But if you get the right seasonings, you can make just about anything healthy and tasty! and cheap! Canned beans, too Home-made spaghetti sauce is REAL cheap and REAL healthy. Especially if you buy whole wheat noodles, which are cheap if you can buy them in bulk.. (i go to WinCo) I've found the more homemade everything is, the healthier and cheaper everything is. I never buy anything with high fructose corn syrup, enriched flour, partially hydrogenated oil, artificial sugars or sugar in the first five ingredients and I am on an EXTREMELY limited budget. You can avoid choking hazards by sticking your little ones portion in a blender, and voila! baby food you can feel good about.
