  • No. It feeds about 2 adults and a child in my opinion.

  • 5 1st graders, 1 adult and 2-3 small children maybe. 5 teens..not a chance. They break it down as far as they can so the nutritional label looks better. Lots of people forget to look at number of servings.

  • Add a couple generous helpings of vegetables and it will A quarter pound of ground beef is a serving, so the pound used to make the HH is about right. I usually add a lb bag of frozen vegetables to stretch it out right to the skillet, and it makes two meals for two people.

  • Nope.....and since it's not very good quality food, it doesn't keep them full for very long either.

  • Yes,it was enough for us. Because if you serve veggies also, and maybe a roll, it will be enough. None of us ate big servings at any meals. HAmburger Helper is pretty filling. And not really that healthy which is why I added veggies or a salad ,hoping to add vitamin rich food to the meal.

  • That means you're serving more than a proper serving size to everyone. That stuff sucks anyway in my opinion. My kids don't even like it.
