Could you make this food budget work for a family of 2 adults and 2 grade school age kids?

Oh and it's got to be healthy. Is this possible? Dh gave me this budget to work with.

Definitely do-able. Making what you can from scratch can make a huge difference in your budget!

I do it, but I only have one grade school child.

I coupon and price match. Every week my budget is $100.

 We spend about $200 a week, but yes if I had to cut back I suppose I could. A huge chunk of our bill is spend on drinks and it's ridiculous.

I probably could. Our family is that size and I normally spend about $160/week but I don't try to cut corners at all and I buy a lot of extras. If I cooked everything from scratch and cut down on snacks and desserts I'm sure $100 would be enough.

We have 3 kids, one in high school, and that budget would work for us.

Yes we are gluten free and spend $500/month.  We could make it work :)

I do it every week for a family of 5 (2 adults, 2 grade schoolers, and one toddler).
