What does your normal grocery list consist of? Just out of curiosity. What do u feed your kids for snacks and drinks throughout the day?

Drinks for the kids during the day is water with a splash of apple juice. Occasionally I buy a half gallon of chocolate milk to have with dinner or as a treat.

Snacks we do crackers and peanut butter, apples, grapes, goldfish/bunny crackers, string cheese, and kids cliff bars.

Staples on my grocery list are: organic milk, butter, eggs, sliced cheese, sliced turkey, bread, cereal, oatmeal, apple juice, snack items listed above, waffles, chicken nuggets, mac n cheese, and canned soup. And then I add in ingredients for dinner from the meal plan and any condiments we are getting low on.

I'm just going to go through what I grab as I go through the store.

Lettuce, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, grapes, avocado, onion, garlic if I'm out, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, brussel sprouts, eggplant, zucchini, squash, apples, carrots. Bacon if it's on sale. Chicken, ground beef, pork chops, and any seafood that's on sale. Cottage cheese, regular cheese.

Snacks are generally fruit. All she drinks is water, and breastmilk at nap time. She'll occasionally have cow's milk.

Mostly chicken or turkey, bread, cereal, milk, eggs, yogurt. I've been getting the kids some fruit snacks and such for snacks, but a lot of times they eat fruit. They love fruit. They usually drink water, juice, or gatorade.

We eat a lot of fruit, especially in season and what I am able to can for off season. We also have crackers, cheese, veggies.

We drink either water, milk or iced tea that we make. I try to limit the amount of sugar added but it really depends on who makes it, lol.

My grocery list varies from week to week depending up what meals I have planned and what I already have.
