I am finally moving into my own apt and I am using it as an opportunity to start eating healthy. What should I buy since I have nothing? I plan on spending about $100 the first trip and then $50 every week after. It's just me and my 2 year old. I need kid friendly food bc he is used to eating crap. I had no control really. And I don't cook all that well but I'm going to learn!Answer Question

You don't need flour and sugar. Milk, whole grain cereal, eggs, butter, jelly, peanut butter, honey, whole grain crackers.
What you need to do is find a smaller store that has good fruit, veggies, and meat that has great sales. Then start shopping every day or every other day and get what's on sale. Get only a couple days worth of food and you have no waste and save money. I have always done this and we have lived in 5 different cities.
My son works at the perfect store so it's very easy. Today I got ribs, BBQ sauce, corn on the cob, strawberries , & vanilla yogurt. That will be dinner. I keep milk and whole grain cereal around for breakfast. We cook on the grill a lot.

Agree with the pps every extra trip to the store adds extra to the food budget.At first you may waste a bit of the fresh fruit and veggies but will quickly learn to buy the correct amount for the week.Here is a little veggie tip for you and as your daughter gets older.I like to serve at least two servings or more of veggies at dinner.Sliced tomatoes and carrots and for my teens a drizzle of homemade Ranch.I almost always serve a cooked veggie in a different color so three colors and three servings easy easy Also agree there is nothing wrong with a treat and homemade is great..Moderation.
